利君雅 訪問 青少年發明家比賽2008 蒙恩小學參賽者

最近看一下舊相片,原來最近大熱的 印度裔無綫新聞港聞組記者利君雅,當年還在 Now 的時候,曾經訪問我們 青少年發明家比賽2008 蒙恩小學 的參賽者。


她咬字好清楚,唔看樣貌還會以為是土生土長的中國人。香港是一個國際都會,有不同族裔出現,甚至能做新聞主播確是一個突破。支持你利君雅呀, 請繼續努力。

去年今日,是上一屆《青少年發明家比賽》初賽的日子。2008年11月22日,於紅磡理工大學平台順利舉行了青少年發明家比賽2008 第一回合。來自12間中小學16支參賽隊伍在公開展覽形式進行的第一回合中,展示他們努力設計及開發的作品,比賽吸引了逾百學生及公眾人士來臨參觀。



青少年發明家比賽2008 最終回 上映!

青少年發明家比賽2008總決賽已於2009年2月28日 於 淺水灣 順利完成。當日多間中學十三支參賽隊伍於淺水灣操控著專在沙灘上收集垃圾的垃圾收集器。我們亦十分高興邀請到香港大學機械工程系系主任陳水助博士擔任頒獎嘉賓。多間媒體都有到場採訪,場面浩大。

青少年發明家比賽2008 由 英國機械工程師學會香港分部 (IMechE HK)、美國機械工程師學會香港分會(ASME-HK)、及香港工程師學會機械、輪機、造船及化學分部 (HKIE-MMNC) 聯合舉辦。

注:由於小弟疏懶,青少年發明家比賽2008 最終回 的Video影片現在才上映,實在不好意思。

MMNC reported YIC2008 in HKIE Annual Report

In the newly published HKIE Annual Report 2008-2009 – Reports from Divisions and Other Committees, Ir Barry C H LEE, Chairman of Mechanical, Marine, Naval Architecture & Chemical Division, reported the Young Inventor Competition 2008 event.

HKIE report – The Young Inventor Competition 2008-2009

The Young Inventor Competition 2008-2009

Every year, the Young Inventor Competition provides an opportunity for youngsters to get a taste of being an engineer and encourages them to use their imagination and creativity in solving problems. The competition was jointly organised by the MC Division, IMechE – HK Branch and ASME – HK Section, with the support from the Mechanical Engineering Department of the University of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. There were 17 teams from 11 secondary schools and one primary school participatedin the game and five awards were set up.

The 1st round competition was held on 15 November 2008 at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Each team was required to design and build a trash collector (the machine) with efficient mechanism to collect the trash in the water tank with limited power source and limited size. The machine collected the greatest amount of trash within the allowed time would get the highest mark and get advantages in the final round.

The final round competition was held on 28 February 2009 at Repulse Bay. All students were required to design, build and operate their rubbish collector to clean up, as many as they could, all rubbish samples placing on the beach at different locations. Unlike the first round of competition, the machine was required to operate on the sand foundation. Several critical factors such as how to ensure the tight attachment between wheels of the collector and sand, the maneuverability of the collector and the mechanism that could effectively collect the rubbish samples within a specified time. In this round of competition, there was no restriction on the design of the collector, it could be remote-controlled or fully automatically-controlled.

The results of the competition were as follows:

  • Champion: CMA Secondary School
  • 1st runner-up: Fung Kai Liu Man Shek Tong Secondary School
  • 2nd runner-up: Sing Yin Secondary School – team 3
  • Hi-tech prize: CMA Secondary School
  • Creative prize: Sing Yin Secondary School – team 3

All the participants enjoyed the exciting competition and the event was a success. We look forward to the Young Inventor Competition next year.
