Hong Kong government has actively boosted the development of innovation and technology in recent years to cultivate local elites like investment and implementation of STEM at secondary and primary schools.

STEM refers to science, technology, engineering and math. It was originated in the 20th century of the United States of America to cultivate technological experts and revitalize the development of technology and economy in the country. In 2016, the former Secretary of Education, Eddie Ng Hak Kim firstly introduced STEM in the Education Task Forces in Hong Kong.

Speaking at a talk in Hong Kong Shue Yan University, the CEO and founder of ICanCode, Moni Law Yin Ling strongly supported the application of STEM at school and believed that it benefited students’ well-rounded development.

Graduated from a master degree of Information Technology Development and Technological Strategic Management in the University of Leicester, Law worked in different firms focusing on electronics and information technology. She was the first to set up an intelligent orienteering GPS Android Apps course and STEM leadership program in Hong Kong to let students gain more international competition experience and become more well-rounded.

“STEM encourages students’ critical thinking so as to cultivate innovation and technology elites,” Law said.

STEM was different from the traditional approach in teaching. It adopted activity approach which focused on participation in various interesting play and activities, Law added. She pointed out that STEM put students as the centre and lead them to learn, so they could quickly and easily acquire knowledge in the class.

“To successfully introduce STEM in Hong Kong, it requires resources, environment and manpower,” Law said.

Hong Kong government had actively promoted STEM teaching in these two years, Law said. She believed Hong Kong students could have the edge on it and attain the greatest learning effectiveness.

“Hong Kong government could take foreign scientific research education as reference and bring program writing into school’s compulsory course,” Law said.

European and American countries, Tai Wan and Japan had respectively added code writing as a compulsory course of secondary and primary school, Law added.

“Internet had been rapidly developed rapidly,” Law said.

There were many free learning resources in the internet, including materials and videos, Law said. Youngsters could follow the online instructions and learn writing program step by step, she added.
