HKBU Science Festival teaches 900 secondary school students that a fortune can be made from scientific innovation

900中學生參加浸大科學節 認識科學如何創造財富

The Faculty of Science of HKBU held the Science Festival which has the theme “The Fortune from Scientific Innovation” this year. Nearly 900 participants from secondary schools and the general public attended. This year, there was an array of activities designed to arouse participants’ awareness of the importance of scientific innovation in our daily lives.

Activities included four talks revolving around the themes of scientific innovation, entrepreneurship, and applications; a chemistry magic show; laboratory tours; games as well as exhibitions. In addition, students gained hands-on experience in designing a mobile app and building an artificial intelligence chatting robot at workshops; and the “Innovative Solution for Future” competition was held.

This competition required teams of secondary three or above students to present their solutions to solve a previously identified problem relating to “Green Technology & Smart Living” in their daily life. The nine teams presented their findings during the competition today. Their presentations covered topics ranging from biodegradation, biotechnology, sustainable roof farming to smart power generation and energy conservation. The championship went to the team from St Paul’s College; the team proposed to make an eco-friendly air-conditioner base on the Physics thermoelectric effect, the Petlier effect. The first runner-up was Po Leung Kuk Ngan Po Ling College; and the second runner-up title went to the team from Maryknoll Convent School (Secondary Section).

浸大理學院今日(7月5日)舉辦科學節,以「科學創富」為主題,接近900位中學生和公眾人士認識科學創新在日常生活中的重要性。

一系列活動活動包括四場介紹科研與創業、科學應用的主題講座、化學魔術表演、參觀實驗室、遊戲和專題展覽、撰寫流動應用程式和設計「人工智能聊天機械人」工作坊,以及創科「究」未來比賽。

創科「究」未來比賽要求中三或以上的中學生組成隊伍,就他們早前在日常生活中找出與「綠色科技與智慧生活」的相關問題,於今日報告解決方案。九支進入決賽的中學隊伍的方案涵蓋生物降解、生物化學技術、天台可持續耕作、智能發電、環保節能等。比賽的冠軍由聖保羅書院隊伍奪得,該隊伍根據物理學中熱電效應的「貝爾蒂效應」,建議設計一個智能環保冷氣機。亞軍由保良局顏寶鈴書院隊伍奪得,季軍則由瑪利諾修院學校(中學部)隊伍奪得。
