Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung opened the STEM Education Centre in Lok Fu today.

 

The centre is a government initiative to boost innovative technology education in primary and secondary schools as well as promote scientific research and development of innovation and technology in Hong Kong.

 

The centre boasts a makerspace which provides advanced equipment and tools for teachers to conduct STEM lessons, and for students' project work.

 

Its facilities include a 3D colour printer, a 3D scanner, a benchtop CNC milling machine as well as vinyl and laser cutters.

 

They will enable students to engage in more hands-on investigations and other learning activities.

 

In addition to professional development programmes for school curriculum leaders and teachers, the centre will organise activities for primary and secondary students, including STEM-related competitions.
