With the younger generation as the primary focus, the theme this year is “green energy for a sustainable future” seeking at promoting the usage of renewable energies as an environmental-friendly way to contribute for a sustainable future for the generations to come.

Children up to sixteen years old are all welcome to join with plenty of games to play. Children will be given game cards with which they can visit the game booths prepared by the schools, GDSE and CEM and collect attractive prizes, including a Power Boy lunch-tools set, a Power Buddies recycled bag and a trendy Power Boy umbrella. Plus, by voting in their favorite school, participants will be entitled to enter a final lucky draw with the chance to win an Apple Watch or an iPad mini 3. Besides playing the booth games, during the event children can also enroll to play games on stage to win cash coupons, and watch the lively performances of the schools.

Moreover, CEM has specially featured a “Renewable Energy Zone”, where children will be able to experience three renewable energies, including wind, solar and kinetic power. They can try by themselves to make their own solar model car, play a round with kinetic power model cars and also make wind blades by disposable plastic water bottles to be installed in a wind generator.

To capture their memory, children and their families can also take instant photos with CEM’s Power Buddies in the Photo Shooting Corner and bring home a photo free of charge.
