Out-of-school STEM Activities in Hong Kong from June 2016 to May 2017

In this second study on extra-curricular science activities in Hong Kong, the Croucher Foundation found 1,894 activities held across the territory in the 12-month study period (June 2016 to May 2017). We used the data collected to compile a digital map which shows that the New Territories and outlying islands have their share of STEM activities, in addition to Hong Kong Island and Central Kowloon. For events with multiple venues, all locations were mapped.

Out-of-school STEM activities took place throughout Hong Kong, with the main clusters found to be unchanged compared with 2016. Districts with a higher abundance of activities include Sha Tin and Tai Po in the New Territories, Yau Tsim Mong in Kowloon and Central and Western District as well as Wan Chai District on Hong Kong Island.

The blue and orange flags represent activities that targeted primary and secondary school students respectively. Purple flags indicate activities that targeted both groups.
