"NFC Watch" for Young Children's learning
Competitions and awards:
The 4th China College Students' 'Internet Plus' Innovation and entreprenurship Competition – Bronze Award
2018 China College Students' Entrepreneurship Competition – Sliver Award
A team of five Year 4 students from the Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration participated in "The 4th China College Students' 'Internet Plus' Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition" and "2018 China College Students' Entrepreneurship Competition", and captured one bronze and one silver awards respectively with their final year project "NFC Watch" for young children learning.
Their award-winning business proposal aims to convince potential investors of the viability of their product – "NFC Watch", an educational product which is designed to help develop the language ability of young children aged one to three. Each set of the NFC watch consists of an electronic wristband equipped with NFC detector, NFC chips and a smartphone app. Teachers and parents can place an NFC chip on an object and record the pronunciation of that object via the smartphone app. When children wear the wristband and hit those NFC chips, they could learn the vocabularies and pronunciations in an interactive and interesting way.
The same business proposal has also won the team a third class award at this year’s "Challenge Cup" National Competition - Hong Kong Regional Final, Hong Kong University Student Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition.
