The Pursuit of Research
Health Sciences Summer Camp
The Pursuit of Research
The Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) regularly organizes the science popularization activity “The Pursuit of Research” for exposing the high school students to scientific innovations, ideas and findings, thereby improving their science literacy. The participants conduct the hands-on experiments of health sciences on their own, through which they can learn more about related scientific theories and research skills. In addition, the participants are also given a tour of the faculty’s state-of-the-art equipment, and learn how the equipment has contributed to the university’s research achievements.
The professors of FHS have prepared a whole array of science talks with inspiring topics for local secondary students. The aim of these science talks is to strengthen the understanding in health sciences and foster the interest in scientific research of the students, all of which encourage the students to actively take part in scientific research for broadening their horizons.
