LEAD Lab: Learning through Engineering, Art and Design
LEAD lab
The future is now! To be competitive, young people need hands-on, applicable skills gained through multi-disciplinary learning that enables critical thinking and creative reasoning. This is what the LEAD Lab is set to do.

LEAD Lab is a pioneering venture building on the foundation blocks of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) learning, with the addition of Arts and Design to reflect a more holistic approach to education .

The main LEAD Lab will be based at the HKFYG Building in North Point, with six satellite workshop centres throughout Hong Kong to enable more primary and secondary students to participate in this exciting and innovative form of learning.

Join us in bringing tomorrow's needs to today's students!

Youth IDEAS report on the tourist industry in Hong Kong
Diversifying Hong Kong's Attractions to Boost Tourism is the new report from the Employment & Economic Development Group of the Youth IDEAS think tank. It states that the profile of visitors to HK have changed and mainland tourists tend to be independent travellers and are less likely to join group package tours. Their main reason to visit is our tourist attractions. Only 14.4% come here to shop and only 17.5% are interested in luxury products although many still buy mid price-range souvenirs and clothes.
