It is believed that participants could strengthen their understanding in data analysis and apply the skills they learnt to the project report and result analysis in the future. Students who have missed […]
Two sessions of the Experimental Design Workshops were held on 18 December (Sat) and 28 December (Tue) from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm respectively at the Hong Kong Science Park. Participants learned the idea of experimental design from the workshop, they designed their own paper helicopters and conducted scientific experiments by changing different independent variables to find the answers. It is believed that the workshops could allow the participants to realize the importance of experiments in scientific research, learn more about the steps and techniques of experimental design, as well as actively apply in science development in the future. Students who missed the workshop […]
The Design Thinking Workshop was held on 28 December (Tue) from 2:30 to 4:30 pm at Conference Hall 01 – 02, Phase I, Hong Kong Science Park. During the workshop, participants actively engaged in different sessions, including the group interaction, user experience, users interview for feedback, idea brainstorming, and put themselves into the set scenes, thought from the users’ actual needs, unleash their creativity to work out innovative solutions towards the problems. It is believed that the participants learnt a new mode of thinking through this workshop, enhancing their problem solving ability, and visualize their ideas to solutions through drawing and supplement […]
