Since 2011, in collaboration with the Hong Kong Academy of Gifted Education (HKAGE), the Department has offered science-based Summer Programmes for the local secondary school students. The theme for this year is “Chemist in Laboratory III Programme: Chemistry Connections with Daily Life”. The programme was held on July 23 – August 8, 2014 and was attracted the participation of about 30 students.
The programme allows students to experience how experimental science works and help students realize the elements of scientific inquiry. Through interactive problem-solving tasks, lab experiments and group competitions, students are expected to apply scientific methods and skills to develop an understanding of current issues and developments in scientific research.
