探索科學的奧妙  第十一屆「家長也科研—決戰乒乓」親子STEM比賽 | Exploring the wonders of Science The 11th “Science@Home: Ping Pong Shooter” Parent-child Competition

 

  可譽於過去多年,透過「家長也科研」親子STEM比賽,讓幼稚園及小學家長與子女一起進行實驗,享受科研之樂。每年比賽參與者眾,反應熱烈。在今年暑假,我們舉辦了第十一屆親子STEM比賽,主題是「決戰乒乓」。這個活動既能培養孩子科學探究的精神,又能讓其享受親子時光。

         獲得「美學大獎及科研大獎」的馮善盈同學認為,看到研究了一個多月的作品成功發射,她感到十分興奮。在比賽期間,能夠觀摩其他參賽作品,她眼界大開。獲得「競速大獎」的蔡津仁、蔡洛仁同學,自幼稚園三年級便參加「家長也科研」比賽,參賽經驗相當豐富。他們感謝爸爸媽媽花不少時間和心思,協助他們製作乒乓發射器。駱隼謙同學與家人一起研究如何提高發射器的準確度,經過不斷的試驗,隼謙與爸爸完成了作品,最後獲得神槍手大獎

         以上獲獎的同學,與父母一起研究科學,把科學帶到家中。是他們對於科研的堅持,讓他們探索到科學的奧妙。我們總相信,孩子在成長路上從探索知識,到認識自己,從而找到興趣以及人生方向,他們的發展定必能走上學習的正軌,朝向終身學習的方向。


 

We have been organising the “Science@Home” Parent-child Competition for many years to enable students and their parents to jointly design and conduct experiments, and share the joy of science. Students of kindergartens and primary schools have been invited to participate in the event with their parents. The number of participants grows every year. This year, our theme of the competition was “Ping Pong Shooter”.

Fung Sin Ying, the recipient of both the ‘Aesthetics Award’ and ‘Science Research Award’, was excited to see the shooter work after testing for a month. She also thought that the competition was an eye-opener as it provided a platform for participants to share their experiences and learn from one another. The winners of the ‘Speed Award’, Choy Jun Yan and Choy Lok Yan, have been participating since primary 3. This pair of experienced contestants expressed gratitude to their parents and thanked them for their time, effort and support. Lok Chun Him Cedric worked closely with his family, improved the accuracy of the shooter after some trial and error, and finally received the ‘Best Shooter Award’.

This competition encourages students and parents to collaborate and conduct experiments at home and explore the wonders of Science. The competition has not only enriched their knowledge, but also helped them develop a better understanding of themselves including their interests and life goals. We believe it is definitely a way to become lifelong learners.
