“Girls Go Tech”
We are so honored to be a partner of the Women’s Foundation to help encourage junior secondary school girls from under-privileged backgrounds to pursue traditionally male-dominated STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) related subjects to maximize their future career options through the year-long school-based “Girls Go Tech” programme. Prof Stella Pang, Head and Chair Professor of EE Department, was invited to deliver welcoming remarks at the Closing Ceremony of the programme which was held on 4 July 2018 at CityU. Our Dr Ray Cheung (Associate Professor) is also a member of the Steering Committee of the programme in 2017-18 to guide the development and implementation of the programme. There were 520 F.1-F.2 girls from 13 schools benefited from the programme in the 2017-2018 cycle, showing significant improvements in their interest in and confidence around STEM, intention to study or work in STEM related fields, and enhanced proficiency in problem solving skills, analytical skills or communication skills. May the youngsters continue to flourish and enjoy in tech.
