CFSS Representing HKSAR to Attend BETT Show 2024 at London, UK
With the nomination by AiTLE and support by the Education Bureau, our students were nominated to take part in the e-Learning, Artificial Intelligence, STEAM & Coding Education Tour for Elites held from January 19-31, 2024.
The journey began with site visits at The United Kingdom. We visited a wide variety of venues associated with Science and Technology, including but not limited to The Manchester Science and Industry Museum, University of Oxford, Apple Distinguished School and seminar at Apple Office.
Most importantly, on January 24 to 26, we attended the BETT Show 2024, the largest technological expo worldwide. Three students earned a highly valuable chance to showcase and introduce their ICT innovations to prestigious guests from all over the world. The CEO of Micro:bit, Gareth Stockdale, showed high appreciation to their invention titled "DyspraxiaNoMore" which aims to use micro:bit with EEG detector, Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence to strengthen students' hand-eye coordination. Amid the appreciation, we also received spontaneous feedback from prestigious professors and guests on how to uplift our invention to help the Dyspraxia patients more. We are thankful for all the feedback in ensuring that the needs of different stakeholders can be entertained to the optimum.
In addition, the Secretary of Education of HKSAR, Dr. Choi Yuk-Lin, also joined the show and we took a group photo at there. She listened to the students' introductions on their inventions. Our Deputy Principal, Mr. Lam Chi Wai Jimmy, also shared how the BETT show has broadened the horizons of both teachers and students in combating future AI robot masters, and the importance of computational thinking in transforming students from technology users to innovators.
Subsquent to the London trip, we visited Paris to learn about the science and technology exhibits at there.
All in all, this is certainly an eye-opening experience to all of us, both teachers and students. We look forward to the opportunity in the upcoming year to further broaden students' horizons.
