Go Code - Innovation & Technology Fun Day As part of the Go Code Programme, all Junior Course graduates are invited to visit the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation and experience science workshops to see innovation and technology research and development in action.

Crazy Circuit Workshop This programme is tailored for younger students. Each course cultivates creative design thinking by combining art and science in fun workshops that encourage individual expression using closed circuits.           
 
Students use mixed media materials to apply their sense of design and imagination to build their own artwork that becomes a closed circuit that lights up.
