Student Testimonials

 

“I felt really happy and a huge sense of achievement when I finished creating a game and blog of my own as part of GGT. The interactive teaching approach was very different from what I'm used to at school.  When I got stuck, the instructor encouraged me to search for solutions on the internet, rather than just giving me the answer. 

I also had the opportunity to talk to many IT professionals who opened my eyes to the wide range of possible career paths in tech. After being part of GGT, my interest in computers and coding is even stronger than before and my goal is to become a game designer one day.  It's great to have a goal I can work towards. Thank you to TWF for helping me to find the start of my rainbow.”

~Antonia, Participant (2015 – 2016) from Pope Paul VI College

 

“My mother and teachers hold a rather traditional view of gender roles, believing that girls are better at arts subjects or should choose care-taking jobs. However, I do not agree with them and my belief has been reinforced after joining the Girls Go Tech Programme. I am more confident in challenging gender stereotypes relating to career choices.  

I am happy to share my experience and knowledge of coding. When an out-of-school art club I belong to needed to create a new website, I was very proud to be able to help with my newly found knowledge in coding. This also makes me realise that coding is widely applicable in daily life.”

~Alisa, Participant (2015 – 2016) from Holy Trinity College

 


School Testimonials

 

“Through Girls Go Tech’s free activities like creating LED wearable tech projects, building and managing plantbots, and visiting multinational corporations, not only do students learn coding and hardware skills, but they also exercise problem solving skills, logical thinking and communication skills. GGT has widened students’ horizons, with many students having shown greater interest in technology and its related career pathways, as well as higher levels of confidence.”

~Appreciation from Carmel Alison Lam Foundation Secondary School
 

「『Girls Go Tech 計劃』透過LED燈創作項目,智慧植物工作坊及參觀國際科技企業等免費活動,不但教育學生編寫電腦程式及運用電子硬件的技巧,更訓練她們解難、邏輯推理及溝通能力。學生無論在對科技的興趣、行業前景及自信心上都得到提升,擴闊她們的眼界。」

“Equally, Girls Go Tech Programme has developed teachers’ knowhow in the application of technology. Our staff had the pleasure of visiting Hong Kong Telecommunications. During the visit, we were inspired by many teaching tips.  For example, to introduce 3D printing technology in manufacturing of food in the Technology and Living subject; the possibilities of making use of VR technology for subjects such as Biology, Geography and History.  All these have promoted the professional development of our teachers in curriculum and teaching.”

~Appreciation from Christ College 

 

「 「Girls Go Tech計劃」同樣拓展了教師在科技運用範疇方面的知釋。本校同工有幸參觀「香港電訊」公司,過程中得到不少教學點子的啟發, 例如: 生活與科技科嘗試在食物製作中引入3D打印技術; 生物 ˴ 地理及歷史科運用VR技術學習的可行性等, 促進了本校教師在課程及教學的專業發展。」

“While the Education sector has just begun to develop STEM EDUCATION, the topic of gender bias has not yet been fully paid attention to. Your organization took the initiative to raise funds for the welfares of children, to promote girls STEM activities for free. Through activities such as soldering and coding, students were assisted to build technical products which they could hardly imagine before. The brand new fashion show session was conducted to enhance students’ problem solving abilities, and students were encouraged to use English to present which has enhanced the girls’ self-confidence. “

~ Appreciation from Christ College 

 

「在教育界開展科技教育(STEM EDUCATION)當兒 ˒ 尚未及關注性別偏見的課題 ˒ 但  貴會卻能為孩子的福祉籌募經費 ˒ 免費推動女子科技教育活動 。透過焊接及編程技術 ˒ 協助同學製作自己從未想像的科技成果 ˒ 以新穎的時裝表演環節提升學生解難能力 ˒ 並鼓勵學生勇敢嘗試以英語旁白 ˒ 提升女生自信。」

“Through organising free activities like creating LED wearable products, Plantbot workshops and visiting MTR’s Operations Control Centre in Tsing Yi, students acquired the skills of coding and managing electronic hardware. These activities also enhanced students’ communication, collaboration, and problem-solving skills. After taking part in the Girls Go Tech Programme, students gained greater interest and understanding of technology and tech-related industries, and increased their confidence.”

~Appreciation from The Hong Kong Management Association K S Lo College

 

「透過焊接LED燈裝置、智慧植物工作坊及參觀港鐵青衣控制中心等免費活動,除了令同學掌握在編寫電腦程式及運用電子硬件等技巧,同時亦可提升她們的解難、溝通及與人協助的能力。完成計劃後,同學對科技的興趣、行業的資訊及自信心皆有增益。」 

~香港管理專業協會羅桂祥中學

 

 

“Our junior secondary students have benefited hugely from the Girls Go Tech Programme over the past two years. An overwhelming majority of participants found the workshops interactive and interesting, and the projects challenging yet inspiring. TWF’s thoughtful arrangement of visiting multinational corporations has also enhanced students’ English communication skills and awareness of career planning. We all agree that these activities have increased students’ confidence and resilience.”

~Appreciation from Pope Paul VI College 

 

「過去兩年,Girls Go Tech計劃令本校初中女同學得益匪淺。大部分學生均表示課堂導師教學生動有趣,設計極具挑戰性及啟發性,加上婦女基金會同事精心籌辦多次跨國科技企業參觀活動,提升了學生英語溝通能力及職業認知。本校相關老師皆一致認同這些活動能提升她們的自信及勇於接受挑戰的才能。」

~保祿六世書院

 

“During the Programme activities, we deeply appreciate TWF’s staff, volunteers and instructors’ support to students. They encouraged students not to give up, guided them to solve problems on their own, and shared students’ learning outcomes together with them.”

~Appreciation from Tack Ching Girls’ Secondary School 

 

「在推行活動的過程中,本校老師深感 貴會成員和義工導師對學生的支持和重視,他們不斷鼓勵學生勇於嘗試、引導學生自己解決問題,並陪伴學生分享學習成果。」

~德貞女子中學

 

 

“From the teachers’ observations, students who did not perform well at the beginning of the Programme showed remarkable progress in  designing LED products by the end. This programme has inspired them to consider incorporating STEM into their future career plans.  Students really benefitted a lot from this Programme.

Separately, many school teachers do not have an adequate understanding of STEM, which results in  STEM being marginalised in girls’ schools.  The Programme enables teachers and students to learn more about STEM and how to promote STEM, and gives girls  the skillset to produce STEM products. This was impossible to imagine a year ago.”

~Appreciation from Hong Kong True Light College

 

「從老師們的觀察,部份參加工作坊的學生由最初做不好,到最後投入地設計電子燈帶作品,更明白到這個計劃的重要性, 從而令她們思考STEM會否是她們將來的發展,學生們實在獲益良多。

同時,學校老師對STEM的認識也不足夠,而女校更會出現STEM邊緣化的問題。這計劃令本校的師生認識何謂STEM、如何推動STEM、女學生原來有能力做STEM產品,這是一年前不可能想到的。」 

~香港真光書院

 

 

 

“Through the workshops, students acquired new knowledge including coding, machine operations, automatic system, etc. The sessions also used a “hands-on”, “co-operative” and “sharing outcomes” approach which  greatly increased their abilities to handle information technology, to co-operate and co-ordinate and to present. Additionally, through visits to global enterprises, not only did the students experience the work environment in person, but also they engaged in conversations with the staff which widened their horizons and inspired their future plans.”

~Appreciation from United Christian College

 

「透過培訓工作坊,同學們認識了很多新知識,包括程式編寫、機械操作、自動系統等。另一方面,藉著「動手做」、「合作做」及分享成果等環節,有效提升了她們處理資訊科技的能力、協作能力及表達能力。再者,透過參觀一些全球性企業,同學除了可以親身體驗職場的工作環境外,更有機會與職場人士對話,擴闊視野,同時也引發了她們對將來夢想的思考。」
