Learning Express Program

Learning Express (stylized as LeX) Program is an Overseas Social Innovation Project initiated by Singapore Polytechnic, Singapore, wherein the students complete the project in a period of 2 weeks. Students use the Design Thinking methodology to co-create innovative prototype solutions to real-life issues. They develop an understanding of the issues faced by the overseas community in the context of their social, economic & political culture, and analyze these issues from multiple perspectives. Through this project, students can apply their teamwork and communication skills, develop a better understanding of themselves, empathy for the community they are serving, and realize the positive impact they can make in the lives of a community in need.
