"Knowledge is Power"
STEAM is an acronym that refers to academic disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics ("STEAM") collectively. The promotion of STEAM education aligns with the worldwide education trend of equipping students to meet the changes and challenges in our society and around the world with rapid economic, scientific, and technological developments.
Merkle Tree Innovation Foundation also considers STEAM education is a key to success in this era. We partner with the Hong Kong Unison to offer tertiary education scholarships for ethnic minority students. The objectives of scholarship are to support ethnic minority youths who are keen to pursue their tertiary education but are facing financial difficulties; to widen their career paths and provide them equal opportunity to become contributing members of Hong Kong society; and, to instill the spirit of hope, a sense of direction and leadership among the ethnic minority youth.
