The competition is divided into 3 groups, which are primary school group, junior high school group, and senior high school group. Under the epidemic situation, more than 80 teams have been registered. The STEAM Center and the three major engineering societies jointly constituted a professional judging panel with nearly 30 people. After a round of rigorous evaluation, various award categories of different groups were unanimously selected. The first prize of each group are awarded by Dr. Catherine F. Woo Memorial School’s "I love Smart Classroom", St. Paul’s Convent School (SEC Section)’s "Laughter Catcher", and Man Kwan Pak Kau College’s "SHACKS: The Ozone Deodorization & Manure Storage Managing System". Under the Prevention and Control of Disease Regulation, we could not hold an award ceremony in order to keep social distance and avoid mass gathering. Therefore, the Chairman of the Alliance and the Director of the STEAM Center went to the first prize schools of each group to award and exchange STEM ideas with students.
