The initiative aims to strengthen GBA’s I&T talent pool.

HKPC Academy and Zhongshan Whampoa International Education (ZWIE) have signed a memorandum of understanding to advance the growth of technology education in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA).

Training for students and teachers will cover topics such as aerospace technology, robotics, 3D printing, programming, and virtual reality technology. Education technology will also be introduced to educators to enhance their digital literacy.
