往届师生感言


段志杰
深圳市高级中学
我最喜欢的课程是人工智能课程中的推荐系统课,老师讲课非常有趣,经常跟同学们互动。而在黑暗中对话,我非常感动,让我知道了视障人士生活的不易,以及珍惜健康的重要性。感人至深,发人深省。整个项目让我学到了很多知识,培养了我的团队合作能力。这个活动含金量较高,对我的申请会有一些帮助。

尹冠童
北京市十一学校
整个项目中参访的地方,都比较有特点,对我来说都比较有意思,比如香港房屋署,因为我本身对房屋政策比较感兴趣,我在北京就很关注北京市的房屋政策,到了香港房屋署之后,我正好可以比较一下香港政策和我家乡的区别。

胡瑷菱
重庆外国语学校
我非常喜欢项目中的人工智能课程,课程内容轻松有趣,知识面涵盖很广,而且难度对于中学生来说也比较适中。另外,参加这次活动的同学中没有提前认识的,但却在这一周的项目过程中,通过制作团队微电影,和小组的同学们相处都十分融洽,成为了很好的朋友。

王铭阳
常州市外国语学校
在金融投资课中,小组人员一起分析数据,探讨选股票,从中学到了很多关于投资组合之类的知识。而在黑暗中对话时,尝试了黑暗中做很多事情,最后得知工作人员是看不见的,有一些感动。整个项目中交了很多好朋友,很喜欢和大家一起交流。

刘本菊
宜昌剑桥国际学校领队老师
首先,我觉得这个项目的内容很丰富,既有理论知识的学习,又带学生参访很多公司企业,又有大学的参访。学生可以接触到很多的不同方面,这些都可以拓宽他们的知识面,不仅仅局限在商业部分。另外,项目的综合性很强,很注重学生实践方面的提高,比如团队一起制作微电影,很需要他们的团队合作,自主工作的意识,对提高他们的综合素质是很有用的。

张硕华
北京市十一学校
我对商业比较感兴趣,因为香港科技大学的商学课程选择参加了这个项目。教授中讲解的知识对我来说非常容易理解。而有些课程中,教授并不单纯地讲解商学知识,而是在此基础上进行了扩展和延伸,涉及的知识面也非常的广,让我们了解了更多,学到了更多。公司参访部分,印象最深刻的是英国保诚集团和香港金融管理局,通过参访这些地方,知道了香港的金融发展史等等,而这些都是我感兴趣的方面。

傅子健
广州优联教育
在这个项目里面我们学习了很多,在香港科技大学,我们学习了很多金融的知识,在英国保诚集团,我也了解了保险行业。在人工智能课程上,我知道了人工智能在商业方面的应用,比如在教育行业的运用、推荐系统等等。另外,也听老师讲解了如何选择大学的专业,所以在这个项目中,我收获非常多。
