Addicted to Discovery (ATD) is a summer research project offered by the Office of Education Development and Gateway
Education (EDGE). We ask you to tell us the question you always wanted to ask when you were small and help you look for the
answer. We will also help develop this question into a research project, and introduce you to the academic staff here at CityU
who are conducting related research. The project can be about anything – from art to science, from geography to history… all
depends on your own “childhood question”. If no one knows the answer to your question, we will help you design and conduct
experiments so that you can find out the answer on your own.
We have only one purpose: to help you make the first discovery of your life – to find out something nobody else on this planet
knows about. You may think discoveries are something made by “other people”: scientists, scholars, clever people – definitely not
you! Well, we want to show you how wrong you are.
Once you’ve tasted the fruit of making discovery, you will want to make another, then another. We want you to become addicted
