Fully Immersive Scholar's Holiday (F.I.S.H.) Courses

Welcome to F.I.S.H.

The Harbour School is excited to announce its Fully Immersive Scholar's Holiday (F.I.S.H.) courses for 2020!

F.I.S.H. courses offer deep dives for small groups into new and fascinating topics over school holiday breaks with experts in our Centers of Excellence, and are open to any scholar in Hong Kong - even if they are not enrolled at THS.

 

THS Centers of Excellence provide opportunities for your scholar to explore marine wildlife in our Marine Science Center, engineer and fabricate in the Foundry, climb aboard and head out on the water with the Black Dolphin, and much more.

 

F.I.S.H. courses are taught using THS's active learning approaches to real-world issues, allowing your scholar to have fun while developing a 360 view of the topic. Make the most out of the holiday break while immersed in an inclusive and supportive educational environment.

F.I.S.H. Courses are offered throughout the year during THS student breaks. If you would like to be kept up to date about upcoming courses and programs, please send us an email to fish@ths.edu.hk

It has been more than 400 years since Shakespeare left this earth, and yet today, we can still find light and insight within his words and lessons. His way with language still transforms us into spectators of common human behaviour, exploring notions of hate and fate, love and death, freedom and justice, gender and class. In this intensive course, students will explore ways in which Shakespeare is more relevant in our world today than ever. Investigating the central themes from the plays “Taming of the Shrew”, “Twelfth Night” and “Hamlet”, students will compare and contrast modern day manifestations. Using these lessons from Shakespeare, students will unveil problem-solving strategies that are applicable in their own lives.

Widely-regarded as an old fashioned craft, THS teacher Agnes Lee is hoping to bring embroidery back in vogue. But why learn embroidery? In addition to honing your child’s coordination skills by learning the fundamentals of hand embroidery with the cross stitch, satin stitch, and hemming stitch, skills learned from embroidery also nurtures creativity and ingenuity. It gives students the ability and confidence to tackle their own projects such as creating their own embroidery patches for jeans, shirts and bags. Embroidery is also a social activity that can be incredibly fulfilling, perfect for children of all ages. During the summer class, students will have the opportunity to work in groups to create a final embroidery piece de resistance whilst older students with more advanced skills will be introduced to more techniques.

Electronic Makerspace Camp

with Mr. Wouter van Marle

Dates: 27 - 31 July

Time: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

Ages: 13+ year olds

Cost: $10,700

Electricity and electronics - these are words we use a lot but what do know what they really mean and what they can do? What exactly is electricity and how does it work? How do you control electricity so it does what you want it to do – shine a light, run a motor or show text on a display? This and more you will learn in this course. Based around the popular Arduino microcontroller, this course teaches electronics from the ground up, without using simplified building blocks. Learn the basics of electronic circuits, resistors and capacitors, and work up from blinking an LED to constructing a complete obstacle-avoiding robot from scratch. This course is the ideal start point for further learning and tinkering with electronic circuits, allowing you to design and build your own projects. Additional skills taught include reading and drawing schematic diagrams of electrical circuits, soldering wires and components together, and an introduction to programming in C++.

 

Scholars have to bring their own laptop for programming the Arduino. They take home the Arduino starter kit (which includes a wide selection of sensors and other electronic components) and the robot.

You will learn about the violent volcanic events that shaped a large part of the territory, and the different rocks that this resulted in. The course includes three days of field trips into the Geopark to explore the rocks as you can find them in the field, and two days of hands-on learning at the Foundry which is the school’s 2,000 sq feet makerspace. In the Foundry, our young geologists will work in groups to create a volcano and produce realistic lava flows, and then use your volcano to learn how a geologist maps the earth using bore holes. On the second day at the Foundry, you will try to build earthquake proof buildings and see if they really are earthquake proof on our quake table.
