HLMA Research Club: Equip Yourself for a Future in Science and Research

Hang Lung Mathematics Awards (HLMA) Research Club is organizing an online sharing for secondary school students on Saturday, December 3, 2022, 9am-10am (Hong Kong Time). 

Is achieving good grades and high exam scores enough to tackle future opportunities and challenges? Are there other ways for young mathematics and science enthusiasts to explore beyond the school curriculum? We are excited to invite two HLMA past winners, Dr. Kero Lau and Ms. Ewina Pun, to share their journey and advice in pursuing a career in science and research. Professor Shing Yu Leung of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) will moderate the dialogue. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and exchange ideas with Kero and Ewina during the Q&A session. 

This event is free of charge. The audience capacity of the Zoom meeting is limited, early registration is strongly recommended. The registration deadline is November 18, 2022. For more information and registration, please visit:

A confirmation email with a Zoom link will be sent to participants 5 days before the event. Should you have any enquiries, please contact us at
