1 Therefore, while the promise of entering his rest is still open, let us take care that none of you should seem to have failed to reach it. 2 For indeed the good news came to us just as to them; but the message they heard did not benefit them, because they were not united by faith with those who listened. 3 For we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said, ‘As in my anger I swore, “They shall not enter my rest”’, though his works were finished at the foundation of the world.
PolyU STEM DAY 2018 In order to enhance students’ learning in Science, Technology , Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) for further studies and strengthen their ability in integrating and applying knowledge and skills, students were arranged to participate “PolyU STEM Day 2018”, organized by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University on 18 Dec 2018. The aim of STEM Day was to introduce the latest scientific and technological development in Hong Kong The STEM Day featured an array of activities including lectures, workshops and laboratory tours on physics, chemistry, robotics, technologies and environment.
STEM : Biotech Workshops for Secondary Students Our students participated the “Biotech Workshops for Secondary Students” organized by Sik Sik Yuen Biotechnology Mobile Laboratory on 5th Nov 2018 at Science Park. The main theme of the workshop was DNA and Genetics –Visualize and Touch. The content of the workshop included the introduction of DNA Science , Construction of Paper DNA Model and Extraction and Analysis of Bacterial DNA. In this workshop, students’ knowledge about DNA could be strengthened and their interest towards Biotechnology could be aroused.
Our students participated in the STEM workshop “Exploring Industry Opportunities from Fun Science” , organized by that Department of Applied Physics, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and HKPC Academy. In this workshop, students learned how science and technology can be applied in different industries, such as medical radiophysics, electronics and innovation technology, and understand how Scientific physics knowledge can be applied to radio physics, electronics and innovation industries.
In order to stimulate students’ interest in Science, Technology , Engineering , Art and Mathematics (STEAM), students visited the Art exhibition “Hidden Variables: forking paths of visual and technology,” from Hector Rodriguez ,organized by “THE WRITING MACHINE COLLECTIVE”, on 12th Oct 2018. Rodriguez’s works engage in a broad range of scientific concepts, from mathematical abstraction to applied mathematics in different disciplines, such as optics, quantum mechanics, information technology and so on. In the exhibition “Hidden Variables,” he exercises what is recently known as the “STEM to STEAM” pedagogic model, to generate new experiences outside the classroom for young people. His mathematically generated digital prints and videos visualize for us abstract concepts. Young visitors are encouraged to think cross-disciplinarily, to think out of the box, and to enjoy learning new concepts.
STEM Ngong Ping 360 O2O day trip Our students participated the “Ngong Ping 360 O2O day trip” organized by Modern Educational Research Society on 26 Sept 2018 in Tung Chung. During the trip, students finished several tasks related to the Ngong Ping 360 facilities by applying STEM-related knowledge and the concept of environmental protection through mobile Apps. After the trip, the students’ are expected to strengthen their knowledge and reinforce their sense of environmental protection.
