New partnerships for a brighter future

Young hill tribe teens learning how to make toys
Young hill tribe teens learning how to make toys

The Haand to Hand Foundation in Pattaya, Thailand, teamed us with onother organisation in Chiang Mai, Thailand to help young hill tribe teens learn a new skill and provide STEM toys for the preschool children. The teens were selected and taken to the Chiang Mai university to meet some 1st year engineering students. Hand to Hand sent photos of the toys they would like and the engineering students had to design so that they were stron, safe and were able to be used by preschools. The students were assessed on their ability to design the toys, teach the hill tribe teens how to make them and finally how functionable they were in the preschhol.

Each toy was based on helping the children to use their critical thinking skills and problem solving skills. They included a large abacus, life size 'kerplunk' toy, a set of moving gears, giant balance scales and a naughts and crosses game.

Both the teens and the engineering students learned a lot from each other and the toys are now being enjoyed by the preschoolers at the Hand to Hand Foundation.

The university is interested in doing further projects as the activity was so successful and gave the engineering students a 'real life' project. The teens learned some great new skills and their eyes were opened to  possiblitles after leaving school if they studies hard. The  children were happy just to have fun!
