The following three CS projects have been planned exclusively for you by your seniors to help you to embark on your CS journey before term starts. You can only select one that appeals to you.
Kidleidoscope’s objective is to provide a medium for SMU volunteers to give back to society, while meeting like-minded peers at the same time. Through the activities, the project hopes to build a Kidleidoscope family with its beneficiaries and SMU volunteers.
Kidleidoscope’s mission is to inspire disadvantaged children to pursue their dreams by instilling confidence in them. This is achieved through fun and interactive activities facilitated by student volunteers. The programme consists of freshmen community service orientation, beneficiary visits and a finale event.
The project aims to provide the beneficiaries with role models through the freshmen. The activities will help the beneficiaries realise their self-worth through creative outlets like tie-dyeing and silkscreen, bringing an array of colours and patterns to the lives of the children, physically through craft and metaphorically through interactions.
Inspirar’s objective is to inspire and emphasize the importance of contributing back to the society, more importantly to be able to relate to the elderly and appreciate them. The project aims to allow the students to foster closer bonds with the elderly, whilst instilling a sense of appreciation towards what they, the younger generation have today.
The project also educates freshmen participants about leading a meaningful life by reconnecting with senior citizens, alongside fun bonding games and exercise. Inspirar also strives to promote and achieve the framework of optimizing opportunities for health, participation and security in order to enhance the quality of life as people age – commonly known as Active Ageing. The programme consists of freshmen community service orientation, beneficiary visits and a finale event. The beneficiary visits will provide a platform for students to participate and engage in fun-filled interactions with the beneficiaries, teaching and informing the elderly the importance of exercise and keeping healthy.
starringSMU aims to forge a strong youth community by instilling values in the participants which will allow them to not only be more engaged with the community, but to also discover and learn more about themselves in the process. The programme consists of freshmen community service orientation, beneficiary visits, and a fund raising event.
starringSMU will be focusing on special needs.
