Baptist Chemists Support Junior Fellows into Korea Study Tour
Over 20 chemistry undergraduate students participated in the eye-opening experience study tour to Seoul, Korea, co-organized by the Department of Chemistry and Baptist Chemists in May 2017.
The tour was led by three faculty members, including Emeritus Professor Chan Wing Hong, Professor Ricky Wong Man Shing and Dr Li Hung Wing of the Department and was filled with diversified learning experience and activities. Apart from having academic and cultural exchange with students and teachers of Kangwon National University, the delegation conducted field water testing at the Cheonggyecheon Stream, a famous restoration project in downtown Seoul, and also visited the Incheon Refuse Treatment Plant.
Korea is always proud of its cultural heritage. During the five-day tour, participants visited a number of famous cultural scenic spots, including the Gyeongbokgung Palace, Bukchon Hanok Village, Samcheng-dong, Insadong, and National Folk Museum of Korea.
Riding on the success of previous study tours, this is the fourth consecutive year oversea study tour organized by the Department of Chemistry, and partly sponsored by the Baptist Chemists (the Association), the alumni association of HKBU chemistry alumni. Both the Department and Association will continue to take initiative in cultivating graduates attributes and ensuring the agility and attractiveness of programmes so as to add high value to chemistry students via diversified learning opportunities both inside and outside classrooms.
