  • Nov 08 - 15: Taiwan Science Programme
    Programme specially tailored for our top Year 3 Science students who have demonstrated their exemplary talents and obtained outstanding performances in Sciences This programme was handled by a special department the Centre for the Advancement of Science Education CASE headed by Professor Chen Jwu Ting The main rationales of setting up a Taiwan Science Programme are to enable our students to appreciate the history culture education economics and politics of Taiwan and allow them to learn more about the scientific research fields in the National Taiwan University and other partnering research institutes By attending the one week programme we also hope to nurture values and positive attitudes towards scientific inquiry and research and to forge and establish long lasting friendships between our local students and the students from Taiwan so as to strengthen the bonds shared between us The programme started with a tour around the NTU campus and the students had a glimpse of many of historical places which are remnants of World War II including the Fu Garden 傅園 the Fu Bell 傅鐘 the Palm Boulevard 椰林大道 and the Drunken Moon Pond 醉月湖 to better understand the history of the university and appreciate the university life within the campus Through visits to places such as Gallery of NTU History Agricultural Exhibition Hall Herbarium Geo specimen Cottage Museum of Zoology and Heritage Hall of Physics the students were exposed to different facets of Sciences and would be able to better appreciate the knowledge gained It was a general consensus that our students enjoyed most during the hands on sessions Many of them enjoyed most the first experiment on the reflex actions making use of different parts of their bodies in the investigation It turned out to be another fun and interactive session when our students partnered the undergraduates in
