Also, to build on the strengths of the initiative on implementing STEAM education, we would like to cultivate "Entrepreneurship" (ie. vision, decision making, innovation, leadership, and communication). This will offer our students more opportunities to design, engage in, and reflect on creative projects. Students can develop their capacities to approach challenges or situations in innovative ways and come up with new ideas and solutions using technology.
The process would be an extension of the various projects students have explored on real life problems and they need to come up with ways to commercialize the final products. Students can actively engage in the process of becoming an entrepreneur. The goal is to nurture entrepreneurial talents while advancing innovation and technology at St Stephen’s College.
Our students learn to write iOS app. They were introduced to the eco system of Apple App store and different ways of generating revenue. Also, technology available in the Apple’s system are also discussed. They can use their creativity to design an Application to solve real life problems.
Our students participate in Solar car competition, Underwater robot and etc. With the robotics activities, we want to equip them with the essential techniques in building robot and be able to assemble robot to solve real life problems. The competitions challenge students’ ability to learn independently, work in a team and understand real life problems.
It is an International Competition in synthetic biology. Our students have to work on research based synthetic biology and to solve global environmental problems. Students worked continually over the summer to build and test designs with non-functioning prototypes in addition to doing the requisite lab work in HKU’s laboratories as well as collaborating with other IGEM teams, approaching companies in the industry to evaluate the practicality of their product. Students has demonstrated perseverance, persistence and determination in every aspect of their work.
