STEM Challenge

The STEM Challenge is a project-based competition in which secondary school students have to team up to study a specific topic in Engineering. It aims to develop students’ active learning attitudes and critical thinking skills via experiments. With the supervision of CityU academic staff and the facilitation of student mentors in each team, participants can gain experiences in a learning environment outside the classrooms.
