To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) and promote national aerospace technology development, the Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) together with the Hong Kong Federation of Education Workers (HKFEW) is excited to launch the first cohort of "Youth Aerospace TechEd Programme" (the Programme) in Hong Kong, which is fully sponsored by the Bank of China (Hong Kong) (BOCHK). It is a series of training for local students, which aims at nurturing future talents in the aerospace field and deepening their understanding of the latest aerospace technologies and Space Science. It is hoped that this would arouse their interest towards the aerospace industry and inspire them to become aerospace engineers to serve the country in the future.
The Programme will last for 6 to 8 months and is designed for local secondary school students aged 13 to 17, covering workshops in five key areas ranging from Flight Simulation Training, Space Science knowledge, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR), 3D Printing to Cube Satellites (CubeSat) prototyping. Students can broaden their horizons by interacting with top national aerospace experts to learn about Space Science and related theories, the structure of spacecraft and the work of aerospace technology experts, etc. Students will also experience the most desirable Metaverse ecosystem, thus enabling them to self-explore and discover their potential during the process. Moreover, the making of CubeSat prototype will enhance students' problem-solving skills, design thinking and teamwork spirit, thus improving their all-rounded development and multiple-perspective thinking. The Programme has tentatively planned for an aerospace study tour to the Mainland in 2023 for students to learn about the advancement of China's aerospace technologies and exchange views with the Mainland youths, thereby arousing their interest in the aerospace field.
