Hong Kong GreenMech Contest

Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) is a game-changer. It enhances knowledge and application of scientific principles and systematic thinking. That's why the Federation organizes the annual Hong Kong GreenMech Contest where participants integrate various STEM concepts by constructing and designing a system with unique contraptions and bringing their creativity, team spirit and problem-solving skills into full play.

Founded in Taiwan and introduced to Hong Kong by HKFYG in 2010, this year's competition on 18 May nurtures young people's creativity in mechanical design and scientific applications. It involves designing and building components and keeps young people curious, inventive and competitive. The best teams will go on to represent Hong Kong at the 2019 World GreenMech Contest in Taiwan.
