DSPS taster workshops in collaboration with CLAP@JC School Hub were successfully organized for students from the following schools: Queen’s College, Wong Shiu Chi Secondary School, United Christian College (Kowloon East), St. Paul’s School (Lam Tin), DMHC Siu Ming Catholic Secondary School, and Po Leung Kuk Wu Chung College, in July 2022 in the Digital Scholarship Lab of the University Library. The workshops are effort to envision the younger generation with the great potential of data-driven and interdisciplinary learning. These taster events were organized/customized for a group of network schools from CLAP@JC project. CLAP@JC funded by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, encourages youth to gain more experience in the sectors of education, business and community for better transition from school to work.
In the workshops, our DSPS team consisting of Professor Wilson Wong, Dr. Kelvin Lo and Professor Geoff Chan introduced the participants to DSPS Programme and shared their insights with respect to the innovative intersection of data science and public policy. In the meantime, our DSPS students (Ms. Nga Yin Fung, Ms. Zi Qi Li, Ms. Lok Man Ng, Ms. Ka Ying Yiu, Ms. Ching Yi Kwong, and Mr. Shing Kin Wong) led the participants to work with interactive dashboard and analyze the youth unemployment among major countries. Participants, thereafter, presented their findings and recommendations for alleviating youth unemployment.
