<p>Interdisciplinary projects at Moonshot are derived from the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals project aims are based on the shared destiny of the human community.<br /></p><p>MSA identifies over-arching themes each year as the drivers of interdisciplinary projects, such as ecological civilization, artificial intelligence, fundamental science, human society, and personal health. Learners and coaches work together to identify, design, and implement solutions to these driving problems.<br /></p><p>For example, some IP teams are designing clean energy systems for the campus, including solar panels; others are working with the school cafeteria vendors to improve nutrition and health outcomes; still others are producing a multi-arts drama with the goal of raising awareness about the impacts of climate change.</p>

03 Disciplinary course

03 学科学习

<p>Disciplinary Courses mainly carry the purpose of supporting learners&#39; understandings of facts and conceptual knowledge. The curriculum combines online and offline learning scenarios to practice active and authentic learning in the form of projects and seminars. With the &ldquo;subject object&rdquo; as the center of systematic teaching, our subject teachers help learners to construct knowledge in seven core disciplines: Math, Western Humanities, Eastern Humanities, Science, Social Science, Engineering and Technology, and the Arts.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>While satisfying the academic requirement of the academy, these courses facilitate learners to think about the links between subject knowledge and their personal lives and the real world, and they continuously develop learners&rsquo; ability to learn independently and learn for what is not taught.</p>

Traditional classrooms can hardly fufill the need for various types of knowledge. We need more intersting and effective studying scenarios.
