HKBU SEE X Fung Kai low-carbon Energy Hub Opening ceremony cum Green Energy Carnival

Date: 20th May 2023 (Sat)

Time: 14:00-17:30

Location: Fung Kai No. 1 Primary School, Sheung Shui


SEE Project under the Asian Energy Studies Centre (AESC) led the efforts in establishing the first Low-Carbon Energy Hub in collaboration with Fung Kai No.1 Primary School. An opening ceremony and the Green Energy Carnival were held on 20th May 2023. The initiation of the Energy Hub aims to promote the idea of “Low-Carbon Energy” to primary students in order to motivate their family members and the community in practicing low-carbon energy life. More resources and knowledges will be circulated through the Energy Hub to facilitate a successful school-led model.

The event and the Energy Hub gained huge support from various community stakeholders, including North District Council member Mr WAN Wo-tat, Warwick, MH; Branch Chairperson of DAB North Branch Mr YIU Ming, Jeff, MH; Senior Manager of Property and Facility Management of Kai Shing Management Services Limited, Mr Barry Tam and the Chairperson of North District Federation of Parent-Teacher Associations, Mr Ray Hau.

Apart from the Opening ceremony, in-class DIY weather station workshops and Green Energy Carnival were held. 99 students and parents in total joined the ceremony and carnival to learn through games and workshop.

The networking and engagement as a result of these events affirm AESC’s mission to become an increasingly recognized hub for sustainable energy studies in the Asian region.


Sharing from Intern Edward:


I recently attended a workshop to teach the students about weather and how to create their weather station. The experience was impressive, and it was interesting to see the enthusiasm exhibited by the young participants.


One of the most striking features of the workshop was the children's impressive creativity when it came time to colour their weather drawings. Some kids came up with truly imaginative and original ideas, demonstrating a keen interest in the subject matter and a willingness to think outside the box.


Overall, I was deeply impressed by the quality of the workshop and its ability to capture the attention and curiosity of the young attendees. The activity managed to strike a balance between being both fun and educational.


Events like this are incredibly important for promoting scientific literacy and encouraging a passion for learning among young people. By creating engaging and interactive educational experiences, we can help to instil in children the love of science.


I highly recommend this workshop to anyone looking for a fun and enriching activity for children. It provides an excellent opportunity to learn about the weather and engage in creative and imaginative pursuits, while fostering a love of learning and exploration.

It was my honour to participate in the opening ceremony and the weather station DIY workshop which were here at Fung Kai No. 1 Primary School. On that day, I joined the ceremony and was an assistant for the workshop. The students were glad to take part in this event.


At the ceremony, the students and their parents attentively listened to the speeches delivered by the guests. Kiki and Claudia brought a light-hearted and amusing touch to the ceremony, making it enjoyable and relaxed for everyone involved. The guests urged everyone to support protecting the environment and guarding the planet. We appreciate their support for environmental protection. Together, we could protect our home, Earth. The students and their parents recognised the preciousness of the resources on Earth and the cruciality of guarding the planet.


During the weather station DIY workshop, I had the opportunity to interact with primary students; through assisting them in assembling the weather station, they learnt some fundamental knowledge about meteorological phenomenon at home such as temperature, humidity and pressure. In the relaxed explanation, the students realised how to connect the weather station to WiFi and enter the website links to access and measure these various meteorological data. Afterwards, the students found this enjoyable method of measuring data and recording it in a book. By analysing the records, they would save energy and achieve environmental protection. In the workshop, I found the junior students creatively paint their little wooden houses with colours and decorate them astonishingly. Kids' creativity shall not be underestimated!


Last but not least, after this event, I felt that environmental protection can't be accomplished in one day; this sense needs to be instilled from childhood. Hope everyone understands the resources will run out one day, please preserve them well.
