International STEM Symposium on STEM Education
Date: 25-28 July 2019
Eligible: Selected Academy members currently studying S.4-S.6
Fee: Full course fee waiver plus accommodation for members
The three-day STEM symposium gives students a first-hand experience of the latest trends in technology, science and mathematics. Students are taught to consider issues from various perspectives and examine the connections between disciplines. The goal is to inspire participants to think across disciplines like artificial intelligence, financial technology, global health development, and design to tackle interconnected social problems and achieve “Innovation and Transfomation for Better Living”.
Students work in groups to design a new concept, product, or service in response to a current issue of their choice. The event culminates in a group project presentation. Judged by academics and industry professionals, the winning project will receive awards and scholarships towards Academy programmes and internship opportunities offered by selected companies.
“An exhilarating experience that I’ll remember forever, the Symposium’s quality lectures and high expectations really pushed me to my limits. From the high table dinner and joint programming sessions to panel discussions and group projects, during each event we engaged with fellow tech enthusiasts and experts from all around the world.”
