HKIE report – The Young Inventor Competition 2008-2009

The Young Inventor Competition 2008-2009
By Mr C O YAU

Every year, the Young Inventor Competition provides an opportunity for youngsters to get a taste of being an engineer and encourages them to use their imagination and creativity in solving problems. The competition was jointly organised by the MC Division, IMechE – HK Branch and ASME – HK Section, with the support from the Mechanical Engineering Department of the University of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. There were 17 teams from 11 secondary schools and one primary school participatedin the game and five awards were set up.

The 1st round competition was held on 15 November 2008 at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Each team was required to design and build a trash collector (the machine) with efficient mechanism to collect the trash in the water tank with limited power source and limited size. The machine collected the greatest amount of trash within the allowed time would get the highest mark and get advantages in the final round.

The final round competition was held on 28 February 2009 at Repulse Bay. All students were required to design, build and operate their rubbish collector to clean up, as many as they could, all rubbish samples placing on the beach at different locations. Unlike the first round of competition, the machine was required to operate on the sand foundation. Several critical factors such as how to ensure the tight attachment between wheels of the collector and sand, the maneuverability of the collector and the mechanism that could effectively collect the rubbish samples within a specified time. In this round of competition, there was no restriction on the design of the collector, it could be remote-controlled or fully automatically-controlled.

The results of the competition were as follows:

  • Champion: CMA Secondary School
  • 1st runner-up: Fung Kai Liu Man Shek Tong Secondary School
  • 2nd runner-up: Sing Yin Secondary School – team 3
  • Hi-tech prize: CMA Secondary School
  • Creative prize: Sing Yin Secondary School – team 3

All the participants enjoyed the exciting competition and the event was a success. We look forward to the Young Inventor Competition next year.

青少年發明家比賽 的意義

雖然 青少年發明家比賽2010 兩個回合的比賽已順利完成,但這比賽的精神,仍持久悠長。青少年發明家比賽 (Young Inventor Competition)2010 的意義,在於鼓勵本港青少年將科技融入生活。科技,很多時候是由工程師帶都我們的生活的。

工程師盡是悶人?
曾有一段時間,很怕向人透露自己做工程行業,尤其是對非工程或非科技界的朋友。我介紹自己是做工程行業的,會換來「噢~」,之後便是一段 dead air 的尷尬場面,又或是幾分鐘 dead air 後,他會禮貌的說「有些工作總是需要人去做的,很高興認識你。」然後逃之夭夭。心想似乎「工程師」這行,全都是「悶棍」?

其實呢,我們也是普通人。我們不是別人想的全都是 geek。也許很多時某些工程師都有比較薄弱的社交能力,因為他們醉心科技嘛。又他們喜好的小機器,小玩意兒別人又不太懂,所以和別人的話題也沒有太共通喇。當然啦,有時間太醉心自己喜愛的科技玩意不覺會忘形的不斷說起,別人不明白一堆問號自然不知所措啦。所以我們工程界的人士也要多顧別人的感受呢。

工程界走向社會
今次香港三大機械工程師學會聯手打造這青少年發明家比賽,就是一個給大家近距離接觸我們機械工程朋友的機會。

其實機械工程師的工作範圍很闊,有些機械工程師專於熱傳、水力、機電學,又或是發電、鐵路、空氣調節及冷凝系統、升降機與電梯等。有些負責研究,有的負責設計,有的做模擬運作和驗試,也有做機器安裝的,當然也有策劃及管理,甚至是操作及保養。

大家多了解我們這一族群,就會知道工程界的生活,也可以多采多姿的。
