In Taiwan, as the temperature rose, mosquitoes came out, causing Dengue Fever. National Mosquito-Borne Diseases Control Research Center reported that 1 out of 200 people who infected Dengue Fever died in 2015. It’s Horrible. So Hsinchu City held a competition about the prevention of mosquitoes for 6-9 grade students in 2021. Based on the competition, teachers designed a course to make students engage in a situation and led them to problem-solving. Finally, students made a prototype coupling different devices with BBC micro:bit Ａfter the course, students could be introduced to the computational thinking concepts, and they have experienced using technology tools, creating a digital artifact, and collaborating. Therefore, we find the learning experiences strengthen students’ problem-solving skills and are embedded in other curricular areas such as science and engine. It’s a good example of cross-domain learning.
