Introduction 比賽介紹

poster_sytc2024The Faculty of Science at PolyU aims to cultivate the next generation of young scientists by organising the “PolyU SCIENCE Young Talents Competition” for secondary school students. This event, which runs from January to March 2024, offers two rounds of competition to assess participants' theoretical knowledge while also giving them a chance to gain hands-on laboratory experience. This allows them to explore their interests and get a first-hand look at advanced research facilities at PolyU.

Participating teams will take part in an online Preliminary Round, with the qualified teams progressing to the Final Competition at PolyU. During the final stage, teams will have the opportunity to conduct exciting and challenging experiments in PolyU laboratories. All questions and tasks throughout the competition will be centred around four areas: Biology and Food Science, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics.

In addition to receiving attractive cash rewards, the overall winning teams will have the opportunity to intern with our Star Professors during Summer 2024. We warmly invite you to participate in this thrilling competition!
