Science and Sustainable Development – Facilities on Campus

To provide a nurturing environment and enrich learning atmosphere for students to experience the contribution of science and technology to sustainable development, new facilities and teaching aids have been added in the recent years. They include the Science and Sustainable Development Resource Centre, a solar electric generating system, a wind turbine, a weather automatic monitoring system and a solar chill evaporative cooler.

Installed with data loggers, high-quality stereomicroscopes, UV spectrophotometers and light microscopes, the Centre enables quantitative analyses of some scientific investigations. There are also demonstrations of fuel cells, Chinese medicinal specimens and Eco-aquarium, supported with solar- and wind-driven green lightings and appliances. The Centre is a part of the Science and Sustainable Development Complex to complement our junior-form and NSS Science curricula.

Sustainability is also manifested by the biodiversity of 1000+ species of shrubs, trees, ferns, gymnosperms, medicinal and scented plants in Fern Garden, Medicinal Herb Garden, Greenhouses as well as the Environmental Trail, enabling students to learn at ease.
