About HKU Taster Junior

The HKU Taster programme immerses secondary school students in the unique vibrancy of campus life and excites their palates with amazing taste sensations. Through a mosaic of intriguing workshops, students will savour the special learning experience led by innovative professors who will challenge them to think differently and creatively.

HKU hopes to extend the current Taster programme from secondary school students to primary school students, and therefore the HKU Taster Junior programme is developed.
