Background The promotion of STEM education in schools is a development focus in the Policy Addresses of recent years. It aims to unleash students' potential and develop their capacity to innovate by enhancing their interest in learning Science, Technology and Mathematics, as well as ability to integrate and apply knowledge and skills across the related disciplines. By doing so, we believe that we can nurture a versatile pool of talents with different sets and levels of skills to enhance the competitiveness of Hong Kong.

In the past few years, EDB has been actively promoting STEM education. Most schools have started to implement STEM education as one of the focus of school-based curriculum development with the aim to enable students to become effective lifelong learners in response to the macro changes in the 21st Century.

To support the implementation of STEM education in schools, a series of STEM related professional development programmes is being organised for teachers. Major components of the professional development programmes to be provided are: (A) Learning, Teaching and Assessment; (B) Enriching Knowledge; and (C) Curriculum Planning. This course belongs to the component of 'Enriching Knowledge'.  
Objective(s) 1. To share experiences about the promotion of STEM education in Hong Kong;
2. To enlighten participants' awareness of the importance of developing students' capacity to innovate through promoting STEM education; and
3. To strengthen the engagement of STEM partners in promoting STEM education, and in providing opportunities for students to develop their potential in innovation.
