目标
Objectives
为资优学生提供校外科学与数学培训,让学生:
To provide gifted students with off-school science and mathematics training, so that they could:
  • 提高对大学 STEM 课程涵盖的知识和技能的认知; 
    increase their awareness of the knowledge and skills related to STEM programmes at university level;
  • 尝试于大学利用所学的进阶知识和技巧进行与STEM 相关的研究 ;及
    have a taste of the advanced knowledge and methods for conducting STEM-related research in university; and
  • 在导师指导下获得与STEM相关的第一手研究经验,以为他们开拓未来,有利他们在与STEM相关的范畴继续发展 。
    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.
课程大纲*
Programme Outline*
课程分为以下三个层级:
The programme consists of the following three tiers:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

第一层 (约一至二个月,于2020年暑假期间举行): 学生可从六个 STEM 课程中选读四个(经调适的大学一年级程度课堂)
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).

任意选修以下4个课程:
Study any 4 courses from below:

1. 数学 Mathematics:
Number Theory

2. 生命科学 Life Sciences:
Biochemical Perspectives in Health and Disease

3. 统计学 Statistics:
Unexpected and Expected Data Analytic Results: from paradoxes to sport predictive modeling to algorithmic trading

4. 化学 Chemistry:
Fundamental Principles of Chemistry

5. 物理 Physics:
Newton in action: From oscillations to wave motions

6. 地球系统科学 Earth System Science:
Dynamic Solid and Fluid Earth

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

第二层 (约八个月,于2020年9月至2021年4月的周末举行):在 第一层表现优异的学生,将获邀参加进深课程 (选修三个STEM专科课程及参与实验课堂,课程达大学二年级程度)
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).

课程将分为以下两个专修范围:
Courses will be grouped into two streams:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(1) 化学 + 生命科学 + 地球系统科学
(1) Chemistry + Life Sciences + Earth System Science

(2) 物理 + 数学 + 统计学
(2) Physics + Mathematics + Statistics


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I. 化学 Chemistry:
Organic Chemistry: Chemoselectivity and Regioselectivity of Organic Reactions, and Spectroscopic Structural Determination of Organic Compounds

II. 生命科学 Life Sciences:
Laboratory Skills for Life Sciences

III. 地球系统科学 Earth System Science:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

第三层 (约八个月,于2021年暑假及9月至11月的周末举行): 持续于STEM专科课堂表现出色的学生,将获邀参加良师启导研究计划,题目将按学生的兴趣,并与相关教授商讨而定。学生将在2021年暑假及 9月至11月的周末于大学进行实验研究,并于12月参与一个在本地举行的STEM少年英才研讨会,以展示他们的研究成果和学习经验。
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.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
