MTR Corporation’s STEM Challenge programme aims to cultivate curiosity and heighten interest in STEM subjects amongst secondary-school students. Using examples from our railway system, the programme illustrates the application of STEM principles in our daily lives, and offers students an opportunity to apply their creativity and technical skills to address a real-world challenge.
Intended for secondary-school students enrolled in Form 2 – Form 5, the programme comprises:
School talks─ STEM@MTR
MTR colleagues will share the application of STEM subjects in railway system in an interactive way.
More than 90% of teachers agreed and strongly agreed that the talks enhanced their students’ knowledge and application of STEM subjects.
Theme: Sustainable Cities and Communities
Students are invited to form teams and apply their technical skills to develop a proposal that address the theme.
Application of STEM knowledge
