HKMU Jockey Club STEAM Education Information Hub
The HKMU Jockey Club STEAM Education Information Hub is a one-stop portal for STEAM education in Hong Kong and aims at synchronise contributions from local stakeholders of STEAM education. It shares the digital content developed by the project as well as the information on training workshops. Experiences and good practices on STEAM education from different key community players will be shared at the portal. This portal will also provide all the necessary information for secondary schools to implement STEAM education.
Participating schools could book the laboratories under the Scheme for integrating the facilities to support their learning activities. The Integrated STEAM Laboratories will also be showcase laboratories, so the secondary schools can inspect these laboratories and try out their STEAM projects before they renovate their own school laboratories to implement the future whole-school curriculum of STEAM education.
Secondary schools are invited to join the Scheme in different formats, including partner schools, resources schools and network schools. Partner schools will be invited to join the Scheme as pilot schools for reviewing the curriculum and enhancing the teaching materials. Teachers from partner schools are also having priority to attend the STEAM workshops and will be invited to provide feedback to the Scheme for improving the curriculum. Some partner schools with more STEAM experience will be invited to join the Scheme as resources schools. Secondary schools other than partner schools are welcome to join the Scheme as network schools. They can join the Scheme on an irregular basis.
