600 students from 25 local secondary schools participate in CEM 6th Solar & Capacitance Model Car Races

Macau, 23 September 2018

Having hosted the Solar & Capacitance Model Car Races in the past five years at Coloane Power Station, the 6th edition of the event this year was hosted for the first time at a local secondary school, the St. Joseph Diocesan College 5, with the objective to bring the event to town and have more direct interaction and participation from the students. The event aims to enhance local students’ awareness of the importance of using renewable energy, as well as to improve their scientific and technical knowledge and interest in the field. This initiative has gained tremendous popularity among the students, hitting a record of 600 students from 25 schools and 108 teams participating this year. Apart from the host, the event was co-organized by the Macau Federation of Trade Unions, the Macao Youth Federation and the General Association of Chinese Students of Macau, and with the technical support of Hong Kong Technology & Renewable Energy Events (HK TREE).

66 teams from F4 to F6 grades joined the “Solar Model Car Race”, while 42 teams from F1 to F3 grades took part in the “Capacitance Model Care Race”, competing among each other for the “Top Ten Teams” in both races, plus “The Overall Fastest Lap Award”, and “Top Three Teams” in “The Best Model Car Design Award” in the ‘Solar Model Car Race’.

Attending honorable guests included Wong Kin Mou, Chief of Department of Research and Education Resources of Youth & Education Affairs Bureau, Ieong Kin Si, Head of Environmental Publicity, Education and Cooperation Department of Environmental Protection Bureau, Wu Kam Yuen, Principal of St. Joseph Diocesan College 5, Maverick Luk, Chairman of Hong Kong Technology & Renewable Energy Events, Fong Ka Fai, Vice-President of Macau Federation of Trade Unions, Ha Shuk Ching, Vice-Chairman of General Association of Chinese Students of Macau, Chan Kuai Son, Vice Secretary of Macau Youth Federation, Shi Yulin, CEM Executive Director, Iun Iok Meng, Advisor to CEM Executive Committee, Cecilia Nip, Director of Regulatory Affairs and Corporate Communications Office, and Edmond Etchri, Director of CEM Generation Department.

Mr. Shi Yulin said during his speech at the closing ceremony that “CEM has long supported the development and use of green energy in Macau. With this event we aim to enhance local students’ recognition of the importance of using renewable energy, and we also believe that teaching and guiding the new generations will certainly contribute for a sustainable clean environment.” He also added that “I am deeply impressed with the energy, creativity and enthusiasm put by all teams during the races and the thrilling moments shared among students and public. The results show a great success of this event.”

This year, apart from the participating teams, other students and public in general were invited to watch the races and learn about renewable energy. In order to make a contribution for the environment, this year CEM took the initiative to not distribute bottled water to the teams and audience, instead all were invited to bring their own bottles and refill it with water dispensers available on site. After rounds of fierce competition, final results were:
