For their final project grade 8/9 students worked in three separate groups to propose ways Shenzhen could be improved. They came up with three topics: silent public spaces, female seats on trains, and bike paths. As part of their project they made brochures and had to make a pitch for their idea in the auditorium. As part of their research they had to interview a peer and an adult and ask questions about their topics. These interviews were conducted in the sound studio and recorded for a podcast.
