世界学者杯是一项年度全球竞赛,旨在为来自世界各地的顶尖年轻学者带来智力挑战,并让他们在这一过程中获得乐趣。上周末,我校BC高中的三位学生代表我们学校参加了深圳区域赛。学者杯不仅挑战参赛者的知识水平,还促进学生思考和帮助他们识别学习方式,旨在促进多学科学习、建立协作和团队合作,并帮助学生看到学习的“大局”。学者杯竞赛全程使用英语,是学生学习和提高英语技能的一个好机会。我们非常高兴我校学生在4个不同的赛事中赢得了总共九枚奖牌 – 三个团体奖牌和六个个人奖牌,他们同时还获得了在今年夏天举行的全球赛参赛资格!

The World Scholar’s Cup is an annual global competition which is designed to intellectually challenge top young scholar’s from around the world and also to have some fun along the way.  This past weekend, the Shenzhen Regional round was held with three of our High School representing our school. The Scholar’s Cup does more than challenge knowledge, it pushes how students think and helps them identify how they learn and is intended to promote learning in many subjects, build collaboration and teamwork, and to help students see the “big picture” of learning.  The Scholar’s Cup event is also held entirely in English and is another opportunity for students to develop and improve their English skills.  We are very happy that our students won a total of nine (9) medals – three team medals and six (6) individual in 4 different events plus qualifying for the global round this summer!  

我们的团队在活动开始前的几个小时复习了举办方提供的准备材料。竞赛共有四项主要赛事需要准备:团队辩论,合作写作,知识挑战,以及和来自深圳地区的400多名其他参赛者共同完成的知识竞答。在准备期间,学生们聚在一起复习参赛题目和各科目的详细资料。他们还讨论了团队合作以及他们在团队竞赛中的合作方案和分工。

The team spent many hours prior to the event reviewing the preparation materials provided by the organizers.  There were four main events to prepare for: The Team Debate, Collaborative Writing, the Scholar’s Challenge, and the wild and crazy Scholar’s Bowl completed together with the more than 400 other participants from all around the Shenzhen area.  During the preparation, the students met together to review questions and to review the detailed information provided for each subject area.  They also discussed teamwork and how they will plan to work together during the team competitions.

竞赛的第一天,学生们在英语和社会学老师Mr. Lam的陪同下到达比赛现场并参加了开幕式,期间主持人为学生们带来了一些娱乐活动,以帮助学生们缓解压力、放松心情。我们的团队首先参加了团队辩论,讨论的主题包括:技术的好处,我们如何查看历史数据,以及百度如何在网络上提供信息。我们的团队赢得了两场比赛,除了一枚团体银牌,还收获了三枚个人奖牌,其中王安涵获得了一枚银牌,丁傲然和皮锦润分别获得了一枚金牌。

On the first day the students were accompanied by our English & Social Studies teacher Mr. Lam and arrived at the site of the competition to participate in the Opening Ceremony where the hosts entertained the students with activities to help students get comfortable at the competition.  Our team first went to the Team debate which were on the topics of the benefits of technology, how we view historical figures, and how Baidu provides information on the web.  Our team won two matches and was awarded a Team Silver medal along with one individual Silver for Ann and gold medals to Andy and Sherlock.   

下午的赛事是协同创作,学生们必须共同撰写一篇关于某一特定领域主题的文章,关于政府是否应该保护公民免于接收可能令人恐惧的信息。这是一次非常具有挑战性的活动,我们的学生赢得了两枚个人银牌。最后的一场赛事是学者的挑战,学生们需要在一个问题的多个解决方案中找出最优答案。在这一环节中丁傲然参加了特殊领域单元的比赛并获得一枚银牌。

The afternoon featured collaborative writing where students had to work together to write an essay on a topic in a special area about if governments should protect citizens from information that might be frightening.  This was a very challenging event and our students won two individual silver medals.   The final event of the long day was the Scholar’s challenge were students were challenged to answer individual multiple-choice questions looking for the one answer which was better than the others.  Andy won a silver medal for his participation in a Special Area subject.  

第二天的主要赛事是知识竞答,参赛团队需要通过使用抢答器进行六轮抢答来获取比分。 主办方设置的题目都是学生不太可能了解的问题,所以考察的重点不是他们的知识水平,而是他们的思考判断能力和协作能力。大部分的题目是让学生通过观看视频或图片给出问题的答案。其中一道看图答题的答案是“lumpenproletariat”。你知道这个答案的意思吗?我很自豪我们学校由王安涵、皮锦润和丁傲然组成的团队因表现突出而在这一环节获得团队金奖,并最终取得前15名的好成绩!

The main activity of the final day was the Scholar’s Bowl were the teams were given clickers to provide answers to six rounds of successive difficult questions for points.  The questions were based on things that the students were not likely to know very much about, so once again the focus was on their ability to think through the responses and work together to provide the “best” answer.  Students were often showed video clips or pictures and then had to provide an answer to a question.  One such answer to a question about who a speaker shown in a comic was addressing was “lumpenproletariat.”  Do you know what this question would be about?  We are proud that our team of Ann, Sherlock and Andy were awarded a team Gold medal for their performance and finished in the top 15!

我们的团队在整场比赛中取得了第18名的综合成绩,获得了一枚银牌,并受邀参加在全世界四个城市举办的全球赛。正如一位学生所说,他们喜欢一起参与这项活动,因为“这不仅考验他们的个人知识水平,还考验他们如何汇集知识的能力。”祝贺我校首个世界学者杯竞赛团队在此次比赛中取得的成绩,也祝他们在全球赛中取得好成绩!

Overall, our team was awarded a Silver medal for their performance finishing in 18th place and has been invited to the Global round which occurs in four cities around the world. As one student said, they enjoyed participating in this together because it was “not just a test of one person’s knowledge, but how the team combined their knowledge together.” Congratulations to our first Scholar’s Cup team and good luck in the Global round!
