Innovations in Science and Environmental Studies (ISES)
Professor SO Wing Mui Winnie (Director, CEES; Professor, SES)
The “Innovations in Science and Environmental Studies”(ISES), 「常識百搭」創新科學與環境探究 has been organized since 1998 aiming to promote a habit of innovation, an understanding in science knowledge and awareness in environmental issues among primary pupils. The ISES also provides a platform for sharing of innovations and inquiry outcomes, which illustrates well the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) integration.
The popularity of the event is demonstrated by having 1000 pupils and teachers from some 100 schools participating in the event every year. In 2015, there were 138 teams from 105 primary schools, with 1000 participants. The impact of the event is cascaded five-fold to participating pupils and teachers, schools, IEd student teachers as well as the public. (presentation PDF)
