On the afternoon of 25th September, 2016, Math Café and Speaking Club were successfully carried out by IBL fellows, Thomas and Kieran respectively. Led by Thomas, nineteen groups of students were challenged to design a contraption to protect a raw egg from a high fall. In the final round, six groups managed to come up with designs that can protect their eggs from a four-story-high drop.
Another twenty students from Grade 1 joined Speaking Club, where they were encouraged and guided to communicate in English. Speaking Club really aroused the students’ interest in English leaning and increased their confidence.
The success of the two challenges showcased the students’ potential, creativity and teamwork abilities. It also set things up for the following other Global Inclusive Leadership activities.

2016年9月25日下午，由我校外籍教师 Thomas 和 Kieran 分别的负责的 Maths Cafe 与Speaking club 活动在校园内有声有色的开展起来。其中Thomas 组织学生开展了egg drop challenge 活动。19个小组的学生们体验了从2.5米高度，5米高度分别把装有鸡蛋的自制保护装置抛下，并在最后的 egg drop 的终极挑战中，有6组作品成功的挑战了从四楼高度摔下并保护鸡蛋完好无损。
来自高一年级的约20名学生在外籍教师 Kieran 的带领下，开展了Speaking Club 的活动。同学们自信地和同伴一起用英语交流，探讨。这样的活动大大激发了学生学习英语的兴趣，也提升了他们的自信心。
