School Talks─STEM@MTR 

Date: September 2019 – February 2020

Duration: 60-90 minutes*

MTR colleagues will share the application of STEM subjects in railway operation in an interactive way.  The talk will cover the application of basic maths, physics and other science disciplines.    

 

In the 2018 -19 school year, we will cover how maths and physics are factored into the exterior and interior design of a train.  The talks will also impart how problem-solving frameworks, such as mind map, can help us identify problems and develop relevant solutions.  

 

The talks are suitable for students enrolled in F2 – F5.

 

*Exact time and duration to be discussed with individual schools. Schools with fewer than 100 students per talk should consider joining joint-school talks. Deadline for School Talk Enrollment: 30 November 2018.

School Talk 2017-2018 highlights

Ever wondered why MTR stations are located where they are? In the 2017-18 school year, MTR colleagues shared how STEM subjects are applied in determining the location of a station, the design of a station, and in the construction process.

 

The talk also shared how our colleagues used problem-solving frameworks, e.g. mind map and fishbone diagram, to help us enhance operational efficiency.
