Re-starting the journey of STEM education
Hello, everyone! My name is Deng Yongkang. I started leading students to participate in the activities organized by the Science and Innovation Center more than ten years ago. After retiring from a high school career in science and technology education for 40 years, he has been participating in voluntary work in different fields, doing his best to repay the society.
It is an honor to be invited to join the big family of the Hong Kong New Generation Cultural Association to lead the Science and Innovation Center in a new position and continue our unfinished dream.
Over the years, the Hong Kong New Generation Cultural Association has been leading Hong Kong students on the road to STEM education. The road of STEM education is full of difficulties, but we are not afraid of hardships, forge ahead, and innovate. In addition to giving teachers and students the opportunity to exchange ideas on inventions and research, we also provide opportunities for gifted students in STEM education to rush out of Hong Kong. Shine bright on the international stage.
We hope that students can make good use of the knowledge and skills acquired in STEM education, and solve difficulties in life with a positive attitude.
Although affected by the epidemic, Hong Kong students have repeatedly achieved good results in STEM education. This year, Hong Kong student Cai Peilin won the highest honor - "Kezhi Public Welfare Award" (with a scholarship of RMB 100,000) in the national competition - "Little Scientists of Tomorrow", in order to reward her for applying science and technology to new challenges facing mankind Solutions with innovative and commercial potential. In terms of international competitions, Hong Kong student Sun Haoxiang won the second prize in the world's largest youth STEM competition - Regeneron International Science and Engineering Awards.
We firmly believe that with the support of the Hong Kong SAR government and the country, Hong Kong students will be able to reach new heights.
