A. Panel Members

The following are members in the computer subject panel in 21-22:
  • Mr. Chan W. M. (F1 CL coordinator)
  • Ms. Hui Y. C.
  • Mr. Kwok S. K. (Department Head, F2 - F3 CL, F4 - F6 ICT coordinator)

B. Syllabus

  • Computer Literacy (F.1 - F.3)
    Our school-based CL curriculum covers both essential IT skills (e.g. Office software and information literacy) and STEM education (e.g. programming, maker, and artificial intelligence), so as to nurture students' skills in solving problems using technology. The AIoT project (F.3 second term) serves as a capstone project, where students have to apply their knowledge and skills in programming, maker and AI to solve a real-life problem. They are expected to develop their collaboration, communication, creativity, and problem-solving skills throughout the three-year course.

  • Information and Communication Technology (F.4 - F.6)
    The Senior Form ICT curriculum helps students develop knowledge and skills of computer and information technology. All of our ICT students would study Elective D as their elective module, which provides solid foundation in programming and algorithm for their future studies and career, especially in technology-related disciplines such as computer science, information systems, financial technology, data science, and artificial intelligence.

C. Life-wide Learning Activities

  • "High School Machine Learning" Programme
    It is a pilot programme co-organized by our school and Prof. Stanley Chan's team, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Purdue University. The programme can provide a platform for students to taste the state-of-the-art technology (Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence) and learn from the leading scholars in the field, so as to motivate students to further explore their talents in STEM. In 2020/21, we have 9 Lam Woo students who satisfactorily completed the programme and received the certificate.

     
  • CUHK Jockey Club AI For the Future Project
    Our school is one of the 18 participating schools in CUHK Jockey Club AI For the Future Project in the year 2020/21. The Project's objective is to create a new AI (Artificial Intelligence) curriculum, a sustainable AI education model, with relevant supporting infrastructure to establish a conducive ecosystem in AI education for Hong Kong's secondary schools. For example, in F.3 AI lessons, students made use of artificial fruits to train their own AI model to distinguish different kinds of fruits, and they designed a Python program to apply the trained model for solving different real-life problems.

    Other than F.3 AI curriculum, our students also participated in the following AI activities organized by the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK):
    • AI for the Future Virtual Boot Camp 2020
    • AI for the Future Summer Camp 2021

  • Mass Robot Programming for World New Record
    23 F.1 and F.2 Lamwooers, together with more than 500 students from other schools, set a new world record on the most people programming robotics simultaneously within one hour successfully in August 2021. The record was certified by the Guinness World Records. The event was organized by the Hong Kong Productivity Council.

     
  • Robotics Training Programme
    Our school offers regular training programme in robotics (e.g. Arduino, Lego EV3) to ensure that students who are interested and talented in IT/STEM can unleash their potential. Knowledge and skills in mechanics, electronics and programming would be covered. The elite students are given opportunities to participate in robotics competitions.
