《Polaris》首戰智鐵 用桌遊熟悉彼此

Polaris象徵堅定、忠誠和恆古不變,來自香港的《Polaris》雖然是第一次參加比賽,成員來自不同的班級,但他們各有所長,對比賽信心滿滿。

Polaris represent firmness, loyaty, and immutable. Although this is the first time that they participate in the IICC, and they are from different classes, each one has his talent confidently.

隊長黃穎欣表示,想要挑戰自己是參加比賽的主要原因,通過挑戰不同的關卡也可以訓練團體的合作性。在團隊中,每個人都各有所長,有人擅長藝術,也有人精通歷史、科學,成員的挑選是通過學校初賽的層層考驗,因而誕生了這支全方位的隊伍。

They said, they want to challenge themselves,and they can take part in different games, to pull them together. In their school, they will hold a game to choose teams every year. And Polaris won the preliminary so that they have the chance to come here. Each one in Polaris has different talent in different area such as art,history and so on. They explained, when they gather together, they can be a perfect team.

在隊呼表演中,《Polaris》利用指環燈和精彩的舞蹈驚艷全場,而他們在比賽前,也利用練習舞蹈熟悉彼此,增進默契。黃穎欣表示,幾乎每天放學的時候他們都會練習舞蹈,雖然大家都沒有舞蹈基礎,中間也會有小摩擦,但是為了能有精彩的呈現,大家都很努力。

Polaris’ performance in the jubilation amazed everyone. Before the jubilation, they practice dancing after class, to develop understanding. They said, because they all don’t know how to dance, so they had to try hard, but they fell out some times.

除了舞蹈,他們更喜歡通過玩桌遊熟悉彼此。隊員們表示,益智遊戲可以訓練大腦的思考,從而訓練出玩遊戲的小撇步,因此常常在下課後,大家一起相約玩桌遊。課後的桌遊時間給了《Polaris》培養默契的時間,而他們也笑說,最喜歡玩《大富翁》,稱那是一個最破壞友誼,又使友誼堅固的遊戲。

Beside dancing, they like playing board role-playing games, through the games, the know each other better. That kind of games are good to inspire potential and find some tips. They all like playing MONOPOLY best, it’s a game that break and stabilize friendship in the same time.

香港隊指導老師郭綺珊表示,智鐵競賽能夠讓學生突破傳統的思維,讓他們看到更多解決問題方法的可能性,跳脫原本框架。她更期盼隊員們能夠在三天的時間裡更加懂得團隊協作,更勇敢地表達自己的想法。

Polaris’s teacher said that students think this competition is interesting, and nowadays, students usually are well-behaved. They just do what we ask then to do, and never break the rules to find other ways. But this game can let them see what they can do more. This creative competition is challenge and fresh for them.And she also hope Polaris can express their ideas braver, and know each other better.

創意新鮮的挑戰模式吸引著學生不斷地挑戰自我,智鐵決賽的72小時考驗的小鐵人們的體力和智力,而《Polaris》更認為比賽就像是遊戲,期待能夠在遊戲中成長、學習。(記者謝安然、呂冠樺/台大採訪報導)
