The International Symposium on STEM Education is a flagship programme of the HKU Academy for the Talented. The four-day STEM symposium gives students a first-hand experience of the latest trends in technology, science and mathematics. Students are taught to consider issues from various perspectives and examine the connections between disciplines. The goal is to inspire participants to think across disciplines like artificial intelligence, financial technology, global health development, and design to tackle interconnected social problems and achieve “Innovation and Transformation for Better Living”. The symposium is also jointly organised by Microsoft Hong Kong Limited.
Students work in groups to design a new concept, product, or service in response to a current issue of their choice. The event culminates in a group project presentation judged by academics and industry professionals. Participants will have a chance to receive scholarships offered by the Academy to attend programmes organized by the scheme or receive an internship opportunity at our partnered companies such as Alphamirai Hong Kong Limited and Snapask.
