The “SciPOP Science Demonstration Contest and Young Scientists Study Tour 2019” is jointly organised by the Hong Kong Science Museum and the Education Bureau. It aims at fostering the pursuit of science knowledge among secondary school students, enhancing their presentation and communication skills, and nurturing young scientists in Hong Kong.
The contest will be held from January to April 2019. Each school could nominate at most 2 teams of students to participate in the competition. Each team comprises 4 students who must be full-time Hong Kong secondary school students aged 15 or above.
The top three winning teams will be entitled to join the “Young Scientists Study Tour 2019” to visit the Science Centre Singapore, renowned academic and research institutes, and participate in STEM-related workshops in Singapore. Other than the three winning teams, finalists could participate in a group interview to be held on 2 May 2019. The top eight individual finalists will be selected to join the Study Tour.
