目標
Objectives
為資優學生提供校外科學與數學培訓,讓學生:
To provide gifted students with off-school science and mathematics training, so that they could:
  • 提高對大學 STEM 課程涵蓋的知識和技能的認知; 
    increase their awareness of the knowledge and skills related to STEM programmes at university level;
  • 嘗試於大學利用所學的進階知識和技巧進行與STEM 相關的研究 ;及
    have a taste of the advanced knowledge and methods for conducting STEM-related research in university; and
  • 在導師指導下獲得與STEM相關的第一手研究經驗,以為他們開拓未來,有利他們在與STEM相關的範疇繼續發展 。
    acquire first-hand experience in STEM-related research under mentors’ guidance and pave ways for students to further their pursuit in STEM-related fields in future.
課程大綱*
Programme Outline*
課程分為以下三個層級:
The programme consists of the following three tiers:

第一層 (約一至二個月,於2020年暑假期間舉行): 學生可從六個 STEM 課程中選讀四個(經調適的大學一年級程度課堂)
Tier 1 (about 1-2 months, during summer vacation of 2020): Students can choose 4 out of 6 STEM courses in summer vacation (modified lecture courses of University Year 1 level).

任意選修以下4個課程:
Study any 4 courses from below:

 1. 數學
Mathematics 
Number Theory  
     
 2. 生命科學
Life Sciences 
Biochemical Perspectives in Health and Disease
     
 3. 統計學
Statistics 
Unexpected and Expected Data Analytic Results: from paradoxes to sport predictive modeling to algorithmic trading
     
 4. 化學
Chemistry
 Fundamental Principles of Chemistry
     
 5. 物理
Physics
Newton in action: From oscillations to wave motions
     
 6. 地球系統科學
Earth System Science
Dynamic Solid and Fluid Earth

 

第二層 (約八個月,於2020年9月至2021年4月的週末舉行):在 第一層表現優異的學生,將獲邀參加進深課程 (選修三個STEM專科課程及參與實驗課堂,課程達大學二年級程度)
Tier 2 (about 8 months, the weekends from September 2020 to April 2021): Students with good performance in Tier 1 are invited to attend an intensive programme (select 3 STEM courses plus laboratory sessions of University Year 2 level).

課程將分為以下兩個專修範圍:
Courses will be grouped into two streams:

(1) 化學 + 生命科學 + 地球系統科學
(1) Chemistry + Life Sciences + Earth System Science

(2) 物理 + 數學 + 統計學
(2) Physics + Mathematics + Statistics

同學需選修以上其中一個專修範圍。
Students will choose either one stream for more focused study.


第三層 (約八個月,於2021年暑假及9月至11月的週末舉行): 持續於STEM專科課堂表現出色的學生,將獲邀參加良師啟導研究計劃,題目將按學生的興趣,並與相關教授商討而定。學生將在2021年暑假及 9月至11月的週末於大學進行實驗研究,並於12月參與一個在本地舉行的STEM少年英才研討會,以展示他們的研究成果和學習經驗。
Tier 3 (about 8 months, during summer vacation of 2021 and the weekends from September to November 2021): Students with good performance in specialised STEM courses consistently are invited to participate in their mentors’ research project related to their interest and have consent from professors. Students will conduct laboratory research at the university during the summer holidays and also on Saturdays from September to November in 2021. A local STEM young talents symposium will be organised in December for students to showcase their achievement and learning experiences in research work.

*因應新型冠狀病毒疫情發展,課程將根據最新情況而定,會以面對面的教學模式或網上教學模式進行。
The schedule and teaching mode of the courses will be subject to the latest pandemic development. It may be face-to-face teaching or through on-line teaching platform.
