Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung congratulated the Hong Kong team on their excellent performance.

He said the results demonstrated their potential in science and technology and encouraged them to contribute to science and innovation development in the city.

“The technology in the 21st century develops rapidly. The Government allocated considerable resources on the promotion of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to enhance students’ creativity and higher-order thinking skills for facilitating the society’s development.”

About 320 students from 70 countries and regions participated in the olympiad from December 4 to 11.

Open to students aged 15 or below, the contest tested their analytical and problem-solving skills in physics, chemistry and biology.
