Topic Based Curriculum
In the afternoons for Periods 3 and 4, students will report to their individual Fellow to whom they have been assigned.  It is the part of the program where all students will be learning the same topics throughout the program, and will conclude in a Poster Exhibition with Performance which will take place on the last day of the program.

Poster Exhibition and Performance
The Poster Exhibition and Performance is a 5 to 7 - minute presentation that each group will put on together, under the direction and guidance of the Fellows and HKU-fellows. This will show-case all they have learned from HKU CSE.  Students will be given time to prepare for the presentation and their parents will be invited to attend the event.  The Final Performance will end with a Closing Ceremony to mark the completion of the HKU CSE Program.
