Pak Kau College, the Partner School of the “Enriched IT Programme in Secondary Schools”, won the Secondary School champion in the territory-wide school technology competition Samsung Solve for Tomorrow 2018 and its representatives attended the award ceremony in January 2019.
Enriched IT Class students who won the award are: LEUNG Chun Hei, LAM Tsz Yeung, TING Yat Kit, TSE Ching Lam, and WONG Man Kin.
The winning entry “Chinese Character Card Game AR” is an AR scrabble game. By splitting Chinese characters into radicals and parts, and utilising 3D-printing technology to produce character block models, the AR game enables SEN students to perform character splitting and combining exercises freely. Through touching character block models, it is easier for them to learn the Chinese strokes. Students can also make use of the mobile app to scan the Chinese character model and automatically search for the corresponding electronic card and display in AR technology, which facilitates checking for the meaning at any time.

In 2013, Samsung introduced this meaningful initiative to Hong Kong for the first time and inspired tens of thousands of young people to develop innovative solutions that help solve a wide range of social issues in the past few years.
