Public Engagement

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.
