STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) is one of the hottest topics among schools as it comprises key elements for enhancing technology competitiveness of Hong Kong. CHAIN Technology Development, the promising startup working on Smart City and Immersive CAVE solution, was invited to participate the Joint School STEM Leadership Project launched by 5 leading secondary schools, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), and the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTPC) as a pioneering attempt to gear up next generation with innovative mindset.
The participating schools, namely Good Hope School, La Salle College, Maryknoll Convent School, St. Joseph’s College and St. Paul Secondary School, have nominated a total of 100 students to take part in the project. They will engage in a series of workshops and team projects to gain exposure and experience of the technology start-up ecosystem during 6-month period.
As one of the collaborating start-ups, CHAIN will work in group with students to educate them with the solution it developed. The students will then develop marketing strategies for CHAIN, and present their proposal to the company on the final demo day held before the end of the 2019 school year.
The Launching Ceremony of the Joint School STEM Leadership Project was took place at Maryknoll Convent School on 10 November 2018. Wisdom Chan, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of CHAIN, joined guests, parents, teachers and students to share the excitement of the collaboration kickstart. ‘We strongly believe the responsibility of transforming into a innovation-oriented society falls on our next generation. CHAIN is honoured to provide what we could be in the process. ‘Wisdom said.
