2014-03-14   Press Release - Four Students Achieved Outstanding Results in the Hong Kong Green Mech Contest

Four students from the Science Elite Club of the HKMA David Li Kwok Po College, Chan Tsz Chun Io, Choi Tsz Ki Kier, Li Ka Ming Tim and Chow Cheuk Hei Scott, have recently won three awards – the “Creativity Award”, “Teamwork Award” and “Honorable Mention” in the Junior Secondary Division of the Hong Kong Green Mech Contest 2013-14. This is the most remarkable record of the College in this contest for the past 3 years.


“I thought that this competition is really challenging since at first we had to design the whole trap from scratch. In the process of making the trap, we had to make redesigns, remodeling the trap and test if it is working or not. The last challenge was that we needed to finish making the whole trap in two and a half hours, it is pretty hard since we have to be precise on everything. I feel really lucky to have joined this competition.” said Kier Choi, one of the awardees.


Another awardee, Scott Chow stated that he has learnt how to cooperate well with his teammates. He would like to thank the coach Mr Eddie Suen for guiding and giving them ideas when they have difficulties. He hopes more students will join science competition in the future.


The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups introduced the Green Mach Contest in Hong Kong, which originated in Taiwan, in 2010. It aims to enhance youngsters’ knowledge and application of different science principals and green energy concepts in mechanism design and technology. This year, 58 teams from primary and secondary schools joined the Senior Primary Division, Junior Secondary Division and Senior Secondary Division in this contest. The HKMA David Li Kwok Po College achieved outstanding results in the Junior Secondary Division.


Inaugurated in 2000, the HKMA David Li Kwok Po College is one of the more established schools within Hong Kong’s DSS sector. The College’s mission is to develop all students into well-rounded, life-long learners who are bi-literate and tri-lingual, international in their outlook, creative and proficient in information technology. Students are able to join a range of teams and groups whereby they can further enhance their talents in these areas.
