Students from local secondary schools recently won numerous group and individual prizes at the 12th Pan-Pearl River Delta Physics Olympiad. This year’s competition attracted approximately 900 students from mainland China, Hong Kong, and Macao, over 300 of whom are from Macao, drawn from the participants in a local physics competition held earlier.

An award ceremony, co-organised by the Education and Youth Affairs Bureau (DSEJ) and the University of Macau’s (UM) Faculty of Science and Technology, was held at UM earlier. Un Hoi Cheng, head of DSEJ’s Department of Youth; Prof Da Hsuan Feng, UM’s director of global affairs and special advisor to the rector; and Prof Tang Zikang and Dr Chan Iat Neng from the Institue of Applied Physics and Materials Engineering/Faculty of Science and Technology attended the award ceremony to present prizes to the winners.
