LSR signed a 3-way MoU with HKU Academy for the Talented and OASA
Today on May 27th 2021, at 2:30pm, the HKU Academy for the talented (https://talented.hku.hk/), the Orion Astropreneur Space Academy (OASA: https://www.oasahk.org/) and the LSR signed a 3-way MoU on a foundational STEM interdisciplinary program that will launch in September 2021.
This novel KE initiative will build a sustainable, STEM-based, hands-on, interdisciplinary, education and outreach program for talented Hong Kong secondary students from 100 HKU feeder schools.
It is based around a “CubeSat” mission design & build competition with a strong entrepreneurial edge.
It leverages off expertise and connect within the LSR (www.lsr.hku.hk), the new, innovative “Orion Astropreneur Space Academy” (https://www.oasahk.org/) and the exclusive schools network of the HKU Academy for the talented (https://talented.hku.hk/).
It will provide a long-term legacy impact of knowledge exchange between an NGO, an Academy and a Space Research centre linking academics, teachers, entrepreneurs, mentors and students.
