Fostering Young Electronic Engineers

It has been a challenging and rewarding few months for Prof Mansun Chan, Electronic and Computer Engineering, who has been helping to raise awareness of school students about the contribution that engineers make to the way we live.

In December 2011, Prof Chan co-organized a three-day Electronic Winter Camp with the IEEE Hong Kong Electron Devices/Solid-State Circuits (ED/SSC) Chapter, allowing more than 130 school students aged from 10 to 15 to experience the fun of electronic design. In April 2012, Prof Chan assisted in a community science and engineering education project, providing teaching material for the Science Development Program for Gifted Students, organized by Creative Primary School in Kowloon Tong.

Both projects received support from Love Ideas HK, part of a philanthropic campaign organized by the Li Ka Shing Foundation to unite the community in improving life in Hong Kong.
