FAB Meetup

FabCafe Hong Kong is a creative community platform. We want to connect people from various different fields of expertise to collaborate on meaningful projects together. FabCafe provides a space and digital fabrication tools that encourage exploration of innovative and exciting ideas for businesses and individual creators.
We are creating meetups to spark discussion on important local and global challenges. We also highlight projects by the community that have identified potential solutions and are grasping the opportunity to achieve real impact.

THEME “Reinventing education in Hong Kong”

Under the pandemic of COVID-19, we are exploring different ways for children to learn, such as using online tools and games. This is the time to make us consider: does the traditional way of education fit our children? Are there any alternatives out there that do not require a fixed classroom setting?

Meanwhile, there are more arguments that students in Hong Kong need more skill-based training and focus more on whole-person development. Under the education system in Hong Kong, is there a way to strike a balance between acquiring knowledge and personal development such as creativity, values and interpersonal skills? Can immersive learning or alternative education replace the traditional learning format? 

In the next FAB Meetup, we would like to learn more on how Hong Kong schools are adopting different learning methods and how these methods can benefit our children. We are delighted to have Ryan to share how digital learning work in his school, Wincy to share how Alternative Education can apply to Hong Kong schools, and Joyce to tell us how she introduces design thinking into the school curriculum.

Join this online FAB Meetup if you are interested on new learning methods in Hong Kong!
