ST Yau High School Science Award (Asia)

The S.T. Yau High School Science Award (Asia) [ YHSA(Asia) ] is a research-based competition emphasising on innovation, originality, creativity and persistence in research activities.  It encourages students and teachers to formulate issues with quantitative precision and scientific rationales, with a view to nurturing students’ passion for scientific discovery, patience in investigation, and rigour in deliberation.

Subject Categories & Prizes
6 subject categories: Mathematics, Physics,. Biology, Chemistry,  Computer Science, and Economic and Financial Modeling. Each group has up to 1 Gold Prize, 1 Silver Prize and 3 honourable mentions

 All enrolled secondary school students in Hong Kong and the Asian region outside Mainland China are eligible to join the competition regardless of nationality and ethnicity. For example, you could form a team of British, Japanese and Australian, so long as all team members are studying secondary schools in the Asian region outside Mainland China.

Although a student can only be listed in one team in any subject category, it is possible for him/her to join more than one team of multiple subject categories.
