Students from Songshan Senior High School in Taipei organized a service team to go to
Xinghua Elementary School in New Taipei City’s Sanjhih District and hold a four-day, three-night “Running Kids educational and recreational camp.” The teacher in charge, Kuo Ching-ching, says that this camp was planned around the themes of science and environmental protection, in the hope of using interesting science games and DIY lessons to let children from a school in an outlying area gain an easy understanding of scientific knowledge. With a smile, Kuo says that all the lessons were planned by the students, who did everything by themselves, from the initial planning and conception through to surveying the location and making improvements.
After getting confirmation of which colleges have accepted them in May and June, the 29 students who took part in this project planned the activities on their own initiative, hoping to use experiments and playacting as ways of interacting with the children, so as to let them easily get an understanding of scientific knowledge and the importance of environmental protection.
