Grade 3 students at Northbridge are currently undertaking the NAE-MIT challenge, Epic Identity

The challenge, inspired by MIT's Professor Leia Stirling, invites Northbridge International School Cambodia students to design their own wearable technologies to solve real-world problems and give us superhuman abilities. Leia Stirling's work has included human-exosystems and specialised astronaut boots with obstacle sensing features.

Grade 3 are approaching the challenge from the context of space exploration, an existing unit in our PYP curriculum. Students are preparing for the colonisation of Mars and designing their wearable devices to help solve problems that astronauts will encounter when trying to live on Mars.

NAE-MIT challenge

Some students have designed specialised gloves for doctor astronauts with built in sensors to detect vital signs in patients. Another team is working on a visor with a protective coating so that it won't get dirty or greasy, designed specifically for mechanics.

NAE-MIT challenge

Students also workshopped ideas to solve issues related to oxygen consumption and production for Mars exploration. Our students reached out to MITs Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics for some expertise regarding the MOXIE (Mars Oxygen In Situ Resource Utilization Experiment), a device that will allow astronauts to convert the CO2 on Mars into breathable Oxygen. https://spectrum.mit.edu/continuum/mit-nasa-partner-to-make-oxygen-on-mars/

MIT's Jeffrey Hoffman, a former NASA Astronaut and one of the leads for the MOXIE project, presented to Nord Anglia teachers during the Summer PD at MIT on his work and career.

NAE-MIT challenge

Our unique collaboration with MIT allows us to create outstanding STEAM learning opportunities for students and also provide them connections to leading industry experts and cutting-edge research.

On Tuesday 19th, G3 students will be showcasing their solutions to other classes in the school.
