Hong Kong Science Fair Nurtures Local Innovation Talents

The Hong Kong Science Fair offers a platform for youth to showcase their creativity and innovations.

In addition to fostering creativity among colleagues through internal competitions, we are also supporting Hong Kong’s younger generation in the areas of innovation and technology. The Hong Kong Innovation Foundation (HKIF) and Sino Group staged the inaugural Hong Kong Science Fair (Science Fair) in June 2022, offering youth a platform to unleash creativity and address daily challenges through science and technology.

Themed ‘Think Big Be Innovative’, the Science Fair received encouraging responses, with more than 400 project submissions received from more than 1,200 Primary 4 to Secondary 6 students across 140 local schools. After the first round of competition, 120 teams were shortlisted to exhibit their innovative projects on four thematic topics. Participating students had a chance to learn how to develop, implement and communicate their ideas by attending the ‘Pre-exhibition Prototyping Review Sessions’ and a series of workshops on design thinking, 3D modelling and pitching techniques co-hosted with the MIT Hong Kong Innovation Node.

Taking visitors on a journey of technological innovations for free, the Fair’s thematic interactive zones welcomed kids to experiment with a Sticky Elf Workshop, enjoy a VR-powered Flight Simulating Experience and create art with a ‘Space Odyssey’-themed AR Drawing installation. The fascinating collection of exhibits also demonstrated students’ innovative prowess and passion in devising meaningful solutions for societal challenges, such as anti-pandemic efforts and caring for the elderly and persons with disabilities.

Smart Water Toilet

Student Cheuk-San Ng designed a smart toilet water tank that has a disinfecting function as well as a filling system, improving toilet hygiene, in particular during the pandemic.

Junior Secondary Division

Po Leung Kuk Lee Shing Pik College


Bees have an important role in maintaining the biodiversity and balance of the ecosystem. Students Rou-Yu Lin, Sum-Yau Chui, Yat-Hin Li and Tsun-Hoi Tse teamed up to create a smart beehive, offering bees a temperature- and humidity-controlled environment to thrive in.

Potassium Reduction Device

Patients with kidney issues are advised to follow a potassium-restricted diet to avoid health risks. Student Raymond Lam came up with this idea to reduce the level of potassium concentration in food without affecting its taste.

Students presented their ideas to attendees.
One of the many interesting ideas developed by the students was a smart toilet water tank.

The Hong Kong Science Fair is making a comeback, with the second edition of the well-received student innovation platform taking place on 17 and 18 June 2023. We are delighted to have received many creative submissions in the Primary, Junior Secondary and Secondary divisions; 120 teams have been shortlisted, who will showcase their cool inventions at the fair. In addition to admiring the work of our future scientists, visitors can also enjoy interactive zones and participate in guest sharing sessions to celebrate young creativity.
