The Social Innovation Maker (SIM) Programme aimed at nurturing the seeds of social innovation inside students and we now saw the seeds grow! 11 teams brought their ideas to the stage on 17 April 2021 in the Final Pitching Competition and the event had successfully concluded! Special thanks to our judges: Dr Albert Chau, Vice-President (Teaching and Learning), Ms Vangi Fong, Artist and Social Projects Curator, and Mr Ken Wong, Deputy Supervisor of Wofoo Leaders' Network Steering Committee. They gave a lot of useful advice and encouragement to our teams. Everyone earned beyond the prize in the competition!
