MIT Hack the Tube

25 November 2016

In May 2016 Nord Anglia Education announced a new collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the world’s number one university according to the 2016 QS World University Rankings. As part of this exciting collaboration, we are able to send four Year 6 and 7 students to attend an event at MIT in Boston in the spring of 2017.

MIT is a world leader in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM) learning. During their visit, our students will have the opportunity to engage in active learning in these fields with peers from twenty five other Nord Anglia schools around the world. They will attend workshops and participate in activities led by MIT professors, students and alumni.

Interested students participated in a ‘hacking’ competition to help us decide which four students to select for this amazing opportunity. MIT has a culture of hacking on their campus. These hacks are fun practical jokes that follow the hacker ethic – a hack must:

  • be safe
  • not damage anything
  • not damage anyone, either physically, mentally or emotionally
  • be funny, at least to most of the people who experience it.

When students are accepted into MIT they are sent their acceptance letter in a paper tube and asked to ‘hack the tube’.

To apply for one of the four spaces on the trip, we asked our students to hack a paper tube. We were truly blown away by the results – see the pictures of the creative and innovative hacks in the photo gallery!

We are delighted to announce that the four students who will represent NAIS Pudong at MIT in 2017 are:

  • Phoebe McLuskie (Year 7) – with her ‘PhoebePhone) hack
  • Jada Chen (Year 6) – with her sundial hack
  • SeungWooLee  (Year 6) – with his emotions robot hack
  • Conlan Morton (Year 6) – with his working car hack.


We look forward to sharing all of the details of their trip with you!
