HKU Junior Science Institute
We offer fun-filled science workshops!

Objectives and Contents of Junior Science Institute (JSI)
Junior Science Institute (JSI) was introduced by the Faculty in 2009. It offers science-rich experiences to scientifically inclined senior secondary school students. We have designed a series of hands on learning programmes for students to expose to different science disciplines. Through a variety of inspiring workshops, laboratory exercises, field trips, lectures and other interactive activities, participants are able to embark on a journey of science exploration.

In 2018-19, 32 JSI workshops in the areas of Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Environmental Science, Mathematics, Physics and Statistics will be offered. The inspiring workshops offer students with opportunities to broaden their horizons in various science disciplines.

Recognition of Participation
Students who have successfully completed the HKUJSI workshops will be awarded a certificate of attendance. Special consideration may also be given to JSI participants for admission to the 6901 Bachelor of Science programme.

HKUJSI is also applicable to fulfill the Other Learning Experience (OLE) requirements in the Senior Secondary School curriculum.
