The 12th Hong Kong Youth Science and Technology Invention Competition 09-10 consists of three major competition categories – Science Fiction Drawing, Technological Innovation and Technology Practical Activity. This year, the first two categories were subdivided into “young Child Group” and “Environmental Science”, in order to popularize science education.
This year’s competition has attracted more than 310 participating organizations, including secondary and primary schools, kindergartens and individual art studios, with a total of 5,212 pieces entering the competition. The award presentation ceremony was held on 28 March 2010 at Kowloonbay International Trade and Exhibition Centre. We were honoured to have Professor Tony Fan-Cheong Chan, President of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, as our officiating guest. The representatives of award-winning teams had the chance to share with the audience their innovative ideas and personal insights. The winning projects were subsequently exhibited in around Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories and shared with the general public.
