Outreach Events 2021
Harness the Wind Fun Day
The Fun Day inspired the students by introducing the movie “The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind”, the young Malawian genius who built a windmill entirely via DIY methods and saved his family and village from drought and famine. It also provided high-school students hands on experience, with teaching of simple wind power generator and building up their own wind power generator in a competition. Two current EE students, Mr. Kenny Chan (Year 1) and Mr. Charles Chan (Year 3 ECE), shared their learning experiences in EE. During the Fun Day, the teachers and principals were treated to a Laboratory Tour featuring the teaching facilities and projects within CityU-EE. We concluded with an Q&A among high-school students, EE undergraduate students and EE professors. All the participants found the Fun Day fruitful and increased their interests in CityU EE.

After the workshop, the students were treated to a Laboratory Tour featuring the teaching facilities and projects within CityU-EE.
