2019 IDEX Competition - Overall Championship and Bronze!
2019 IDEX - Singapore
As the world becomes ever more volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous, the tenacity of our students to find opportunities within adversity and the ability to work within tight constraints to innovate and create new value is ever more important.
Innovation is not just about inventing new products. It requires empathetic skills to understand the needs of people and the heart to use one’s cognitive and inventive capabilities to benefit the greater community through sound design and engineering principles. It is with this intent that the theme for IDEX 2019 is set as “Technology for Humanity”.
Mingdao High School International Department participated in the 2019 IDEX Competition hosted by Singapore Anglo-Chinese Independent School. Two teams were selected and invited to Singapore to exhibit and compete their inventions from the 31st of March to the 6th of April. In total, there were 27 teams from 7 different countries competing for the final spot - Overall Champion GOLD award. Students - Tyrone Tsao, Marshal Tian and Andy Zhao from grade 9 with their invention "Give us light" have gain praise and recognition from 20 judges who are all experts in the field of Science and engineering.
The second team from Grade 10, students Gino Lee and Farbinna Tseng won the Bronze award in the 2019 IDEX competition for their invention 'Wheelchair climber'.
Congratulations to both team!
