Inspiration beyond the classroom

As parents, we all know that learning is not contained within a classroom but goes beyond its doors. Kids pick up everything… our mannerisms, our habits and even our ahem phrases and colourful words that “accidentally” slip out. Our kids are like sponges and they absorb everything around them. It’s important to have positive and aspirational people around to encourage them to reach their fullest potential.

Stamford American School has created the Global Mentor Programme which sets to inspire children beyond the classroom. By bringing in exemplary individuals to school, students get to learn from the best of the best. From Olympians to Nobel Laureates, there is no shortage of inspiration. Stamford American School believes that hearing from these accomplished people who also embody the mission of the school will inspire young minds that all things are possible. As parents we’re always on the lookout on ways to engage and inspire our kiddos and we can’t think of a better way than through this mentor programme.

Stamford American School is pleased to announce its first mentor of the new year, Bay McLaughlin. Bay is the co-founder of Brinc, a global Internet of Things (IoT) accelerator and platform based in Hong Kong with offices in Shenzhen, Guangzhou, and London. As someone who is experienced in a career of startups, he brings his expertise in operations abilities to connect the dots from Asia to Silicon Valley for IoT companies around the world.

Bay will be talking to Stamford’s Grade 5 to 7 students about his experience in the tech industry. Bay will share his own experience working technology and innovation which will resonate with young minds eager to be innovators of tomorrow. He will also introduce some innovative gadgets that are sure to spark the interest of tech-savvy students.Bay will also be speaking to the Stamford staff and interested parents about some of the interesting trends in technology and further inspiring them to continue to “think for the future” and also keep inspiring their students to do the same.

Previously, Stamford American School has invited several exciting individuals to engage with students prior to opening in September 2017, including, Gymnastics World Championships Judge and Coach, Joy Koh. Other exemplary individuals include Forbes 30 under 30 nominee, Michelle Sun, Co-Founder and CEO of First Code Academy, award-winning children’s author and our previous That Mama, Sarah Brennan who inspired a love of literacy in children and parents as well as Dr. Bunhead, the world famous TV scientist.
