Computer Science Challenge 2016

Computer Science has been evolving rapidly with close integration with Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). To promote STEM education to primary and secondary school students, the Department of Computer Science organized the inaugural Computer Science Challenge 2016, together with Hong Kong Digital Game-Based Learning Association and the Ming Pao Education Publishing Limited.

The Challenge received wide attention from both primary and secondary schools with the participation of over 170 students from 50 schools. The event came to a successful conclusion on Saturday, 21 May 2016 at CityU. Our efforts in promoting Computer Science education were also recognized by external major organizations and our industry partners with sponsorship from ASTRI, Everbest Technology Limited, Google (China & Hong Kong), Makeblock and others. The results of the Challenge are available here.
