STEM with Tram: Summer Bootcamp

Get a taste of everyday engineering, sustainable energy, app development, and coding in this special bootcamp from us!

 

In this online course with hands-on activities, students can explore different aspects of real-life engineering as they put together a solar-powered tram model, and think about what can be done about Hong Kong’s carbon footprint. Students will even get to dip their toes in app development by creating a prototype app, and explore the future of self-driving vehicles in a code-along exercise using MIT’s Scratch coding language.
