International Symposium on STEM Education

In face of new technological implications on our social lives and interactions, on development of healthcare systems and on a variety of other research and development, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education has become a global trend. In this Summer, Academy for the Talented (hereby "Academy") will hold an International Symposium to focus on how technology continues to expand in every aspect of our lives.

The symposium will bring together 100 students from across the globe. Through this symposium, we aim to enhance students’ interests in technology learning, creativity, innovation, and their ability to integrate cross-disciplinary knowledge with the application of their skills.   

Date: July 28 - 30, 2017

Pre-symposium preparation:

  • Students are required to complete some online courses before the symposium.  There is an online discussion forum to facilitate discussions amongst the students and course coordinator.
  • Students will be put in a group of 5-7 students and will be expected to work together on a theme based project in relation to technology.
