Event Highlight

The Department of Computer Science hosted its Open Day on 22 March 2014. More than 300 participants including secondary school students and the general public attended the event.

The Mind Drive Competition (Secondary School Section) was a posture-controlled car racing competition. All participants had to attend three training workshops organised by the Department in early March. About 100 secondary school students from 23 secondary schools in Hong Kong competed in teams, showing off programmed postures that they designed themselves as well as displaying body coordination. The champion team was Carmel Secondary School, the first runner-up was Christian Alliance Cheng Wing Gee College, and the second runner-up was Pui Kiu Middle School and Tsung Tsin Christian Academy respectively.

Mind Drive Competition for Secondary School Students
Mar. 22, 2014

The Mind Drive Competition (Secondary School Section) is a car racing competition! It is one of the Department's vibrant events that is for the first time open to secondary school students in Hong Kong. It aims at promoting to secondary school students the latest body sensing and computing technologies, and related innovations.

We cordially invite secondary school students to participate in this novel posture-controlled car racing. This event consists of a series of training workshops (typically 3 sessions) to provide background on the posture detection software, and to assist the participants to design and implement the program and postures to control a remote controlled toy car. The participants are expected to work as a team and "use their mind" to think of the best way to control their cars. On the competition day, the participants will make use of their own posture ideas to race with other schools. Use your imagination and creativity! To win trophies, register the Mind Drive Competition and explore our whole competition package including body-sensing computer programs, the racing track, and the toy cars.
