The promotion of STEM education aligns with the worldwide trend of equipping students for the rapid economic, scientific and technological developments, as well as the changes and challenges in society and around the world.
To build a culture of innovation among students, STEM education is conducted through different aspects in our school such as educational visit, extra-curricular activities, after-school STEM training group, STEM competitions and in-house sharing.
1. Educational Visit
Educational visits with different STEM topics have been arranged for each level so that students can associate what they have learnt with the world around them.
2. STEM Education on ECA
Several our ECA groups are related with STEM Education. For KS1 students, they can join the rotating STEM group like ‘First Step in STEM’ and ‘Innovative Arts’. For KS2 students, they can join the steady groups like ‘STEAM Learning Group’ and ‘Lego Robotics Group’. Students enjoy learning STEM through using I-pad, Wedo 2.0 and coding.
3. Beside ECA, some students join the after – school STEM training group. Interesting learning activities such as making lego car and writing microbit coding are designed to inspire students’ innovative ideas.
4. Inter-school Competition
Our school provides a lot of opportunities to students in joining STEM competitions. We joined the ‘HKUST Underwater Robot Competition’, ‘Hong Kong Robofest Roboparade’ and ‘Lego Boost Competition’. The performance of our students were excellent. Some of them received the 1st prize and merit award prize in the competition.
5. In-house sharing
After the competitions, the participants shared their experience in joining the STEM related competitions with their schoolmates.
