Hong Kong students achieve excellent results at the 24th Asian Physics Olympiad.

A team of eight students representing Hong Kong have won one gold, three silver and two bronze medals as well as two honourable mentions at the 24th Asian Physics Olympiad in Malaysia.


Winning the gold medal was Lincoln Liu from Sha Tin College. Earning silver were Leung Chi-fung from Evangel College, Edison Fu from Queen's College and Yan King-yiu from Queen Elizabeth School, while Matthew Mui from Sze Yap Commercial & Industrial Association Wong Tai Shan Memorial College and Michael Tang from St. Joseph's College won bronze.


Po Leung Kuk Choi Kai Yau School student Marcus Poon and Chan Hoi-chi from Hong Kong Chinese Women's Club College received honourable mentions.


Secretary for Education Choi Yuk-lin congratulated the team on their performance, saying that their impressive results demonstrate the concerted efforts of the stakeholders in promoting STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) education.


“The Education Bureau will continue to step up the promotion of STEAM education in primary and secondary schools, including the further promotion of setting up a school-based talent pool in schools to identify and nurture more STEAM talent.”


The bureau will also strengthen collaboration with the Academy for Gifted Education to offer more diversified and high-quality off-school gifted education services, particularly in STEAM-related areas, and arrange for students with the potential to participate in systematic training and competitions of reasonable scale to nurture innovation and technology talent for Hong Kong.


Over 200 contestants from 27 countries or cities took part in the competition in Malaysia from June 3 to 10.
