The Hong Kong Student Science Project Competition 2003 is inviting creative secondary school students to take up its latest challenge under the theme 'Science, Youth and Future'. The competition, jointly organised by the Innovation and Technology Commission, the Education and Manpower Bureau and the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups (HKFYG), is open to two types of projects. The first is an invention incorporating scientific knowledge and imagination. The second is a written report backed by experimental data investigating scientific phenomenon or a theory. Winners will take part in the Third Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation Youth Science Festival to be held in Beijing this summer. Teams must be nominated by their school and consist of no more than five members between the ages of 15 and 18. A subsidy of $1,000 will be granted on a reimbursement basis. The deadline for nominations is February 14. A session with advisers will be held in March to offer support and advise teams. Details of projects should be submitted on or before April 29. Results will be announced in June. For more details visit www.hksspc.gov.hk or call Bonnie Cheng of the HKFYG at 2561 6149.
