CEE hosted the Two-day Training for 30 students from 10 local secondary schools on 26 and 27 June 2019, offering them the opportunity to taste what is civil and environmental engineering via mini lecture, simple laboratory experiments and CEE Summer Programme. The training also aimed to introduce our Department, promote CEE academic programmes to S4 and S5 students, and strengthen CEE’s connection with secondary schools.

On 27 June 2019, 20 more students from 5 local secondary schools joined the training. There were 50 secondary students in total.

Two-day Training to Secondary Students 2019 cum Summer Programme 2019

On Day 2 of the Training cum Summer Programme 2019 (27 June), Team-based Competition was the highlight of the day. This year’s competition was “Plastic Stick Bridge Challenge”. 50 secondary students were divided into 12 teams and each team was given an hour to fabricate plastic stick bridge structures. The bridge structures were judged against maximum loading, lightness, aesthetic and innovation. The competition provided an opportunity for the students to develop their analytical and communication skills, and to acquire structural engineering knowledge through building and testing a plastic stick bridge structure.
