The University of Hong Kong is the territory's oldest institute of higher learning and has one of the top-ranked computer science programs in all of Asia.
"In the US, we've had great success at making STEM education impactful and meaningful to students at an early age, well before they are exposed to it the classroom," says Kristopher Kasper, Regional Manager for iD Tech. "Our camps set students on a path toward college and future careers -- and now we are bringing that success to Hong Kong."
Weeklong courses will be held at The University of Hong Kong over a period of seven weeks starting June 26, 2017. Kids and teens can take a range of one-week courses including coding, electrical engineering, robotics, and game design. Students will spend the week getting one-on-one instruction and creating an impressive project. Courses provide academic rigor and hands-on experience in a fun, approachable way that's proven to help students build a competitive advantage for their future.
