SciTech Challenge 2019

SciTech Challenge, first organised in 2017, is an open competition for innovators, giving them an opportunity to pitch their products to potential users and industries. Through workshops and a mentorship programme, accelerate the progress in bringing ideas into realisation.

Encouraging projects from ideas to development,

Development to prototype, and prototype production.

2017 kick-started a successful opening of SciTech Challenge, with Indiegogo and Arrow as co-organisers, teams were able to understand the skills launch their products on an online crowdfunding platform with remarkable support in prototype development respectively.

In 2018, with the topic of Home Care, HKSTP expanded the team category, creating a Student Group for the challenge. SciTech Challenge 2018 had generous support from HKCSS, arranging home visits and sharing sessions.  Numerous Science Park companies had also provided workshops and software trainings to contestant teams.
