Learning by Doing

Liz Duffy, ISS President

Recently I visited the International School of Dongguan (ISD), an ISS-managed school in southern China. While at ISD I attended a presentation by Andy, a senior, describing how he invented and was in the process of patenting a scuba diving device that will allow divers to more easily signal when they are in distress.

It was inspiring to hear Andy describe his project in both Mandarin and English (his second and third languages as he grew up speaking Cantonese). As noteworthy as his linguistic skills were, Andy’s insights on both the design process and the value of an international school were even more impressive.
