Speech on Community Service at Tainan Municipal Beimen District Keliao Elementary School 北門蚵寮國小演講(社區服務)
03 February 2023
In the science education event held in collaboration with the Science Research Club of National Tainan Chia-Chi Senior High School at Tainan Municipal Beiman District Keliao Elementary School, I designed a lesson plan for the students based on solar-powered cars. During the class, I wore a cute little seal costume to catch the children's attention. The lesson included a discussion on global warming, the seal losing its habitat, the mysterious message brought by the Solar Hero (using visible light communication module to play Eason Chan's "Lone Hero"), the wonders of solar power, and a hands-on activity to build a solar-powered car. I could feel the children's interest in solar energy and visible light communication from their joyful smiles, which made me very happy. I believe that this kind of outdoor education can help students better understand scientific knowledge and spark their interest in optoelectronics.
It was an unforgettable experience to interact with the elementary school students, and it broadened my teaching audience from doctoral students to elementary school students. Perhaps in the near future, I will even be able to teach in kindergartens! I am honored to be involved in science education in rural areas and to bring some interesting teaching content to the students. I hope this teaching activity can inspire students' interest in science and technology and help them understand the close relationship between scientific knowledge and everyday life.
Finally, I would like to thank Professor Hsu for inviting me to participate in this event. I also hope to have more opportunities in the future to continue bringing interesting scientific education content to students.
