STEM Education Fair 2020 Inspiring Creativity Promoting Innovation

Venue:
Hong Kong Science Park
 
Description:
Objective:
To tie in with the promotion of STEM education, the Education Bureau (EDB) organised the first “Student Education Fair on Science, Technology and Mathematics 2016” in the Hong Kong Science Park in 2016. The event was actively participated and well received by schools and the general public. The EDB will organise the STEM Education Fair again in July 2020 to further promote STEM education through the collaboration of professions.
 
With the theme “Inspiring Creativity Promoting Innovation”, the Fair aims to showcase and celebrate a wide range of students’ learning achievements on STEM-related areas, as well as to provide teachers with a platform for exchanging learning and teaching strategies for implementing STEM education. We hope to further enhance students’ learning interest, creativity and innovation, as well as their ability in integrating and applying cross-disciplinary knowledge and skills through organising this event.
 
The Fair will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on 3 and 4 July 2020 in a major exhibition venue in Hong Kong (to be confirmed). The Fair features a total of 80 exhibition booths presented by local primary and secondary schools, 20 exhibition booths by local tertiary institutions and professional bodies, and a series of STEM-related seminars and workshops covering various themes. The Fair is open to the public, while students, teachers, education practitioners and parents are most welcome to join. For details of the Fair, please refer to the Annex. Further information about the Fair will be announced later.
 
Primary and secondary schools are invited to participate in the Fair to
showcase students’ learning achievements in STEM education in the form of booth exhibition. A selection panel comprising members of the Curriculum Development Council Committees of STEM-related Key Learning Areas, EDB officers, etc. will be set up to select schools to join the exhibition. Selected schools will be informed by the end of February 2020. In order to encourage schools to participate in the exhibition as well as enhance students’ exposure to the latest development in STEM-related fields, a series of pre-Fair learning activities, including STEM-related workshops and STEM-themed study tours to the Greater Bay Area, will be organised for students nominated by the schools participating in the exhibition. Furthermore, schools awarded the “Best Booths” in the exhibition will be invited to nominate students to join a Mainland STEM-themed advanced study tour tentatively scheduled for August 2020.
