Science Students Won Champions In National Innovation Competitions

Two groups of Science students won nationwide gold medals respectively in The 4th China College Students' "Internet Plus" Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition and China College Student's Entrepreneurship Competition. Both projects had been awarded the Second-Class honour in the "Challenge Cup" National Competition Hong Kong Regional Final prior to the said national competitions.

Wong Sum Ming and his team members clinched the Gold Award in The 4th China College Students' "Internet Plus" Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition with their invention of self-disinfection handle, which was designed to prevent transmission of harmful pathogens in public places. By placing reflection of internal UV light in a cylindrical transparent door handle coated in titanium dioxide (TiO2), the system effectively and safely decomposes pathogens.

Four Life Sciences students, Lai Sok Ian, Tam Ka Wing, Ng Heung Yu and Tang Hoi Yan won the Gold Award in the China College Student's Entrepreneurship Competition "Chuang Qing Chun" in 2018 held by the Zhejiang University in Hangzhou. The project entitled "Mushroom for the Next" promoted sustainability awareness to the public through mushroom science and education. The team also devoted in disseminating the impact of mushroom for the next economy and global need to the public through their mini-exhibition, workshops and over 10 showcases. Stay tuned for updated news about forthcoming project displays and exhibitions.
