City University's (CityU) faculty of science and engineering has organised a series of fun learning activities for secondary students this summer.

The activities aim to raise teenagers' interest in science and engineering.

The summer lab attachment scheme will allow Form Five and Seven students to gain extra knowledge by testing their initiatives and learning from research staff at CityU.

The students will learn basic skills of scientific investigation, such as project design, experimentation and writing reports.

There will also be science and engineering fun days for Form Four to Seven students. The fun days, to be held from July 25 to 29, will include workshops, lectures, and laboratory tours and sessions.

A three-day exhibition of projects by the faculty's students was held last week at CityU's Kowloon Tong campus.

The exhibition gave visitors a glimpse of what science and engineering students do. Tours were also arranged to provide more

information about the faculty's programmes.
