The Jockey Club Community Care and STEM in Action Project held its closing ceremony on October 14, 2023.
The 21 products were exhibited in a display area at the ceremony, were the students introduced their features, demonstrated how they work and shared their experiences of building them. The students’ remarkable creations covered various aspects of life, including clothing, food, housing, transportation and entertainment, with a diverse range of functions and an emphasis on ease of use. Beneficiaries included elderly people, visually impaired individuals, hearing-impaired individuals, wheelchair users, residents of social co-housing, and those living in confined spaces. The team from Carmel Holy Word Secondary School created the Railway Safety Device for the Hearing-impaired, which uses flashing lights to assist hearing-impaired individuals to avoid accidents involving train doors. The team from Hong Kong Baptist University Affiliated School Wong Kam Fai Secondary and Primary School designed Hale-Ware, and the team from Pentecostal Holiness Church Wing Kwong College designed the Smart Dining Assistant product, both aimed at allowing individuals with limb disabilities or those in other forms of physical need to dine more easily.
