We attach importance to promoting the maritime industry to youngsters and increase their awareness towards the career opportunities of Hong Kong’s maritime sector during their formative years. A funding support of $1.32 million under the Maritime and Aviation Training Fund is provided to the Hong Kong Maritime Museum for production of a curriculum-linked education pack “NAUTIC QUEST 魚吐” for secondary students to impart knowledge on the maritime and shipping industry.
The education pack, “NAUTIC QUEST 魚吐”, is a multi-media, interactive, encyclopaedic platform for maritime learning. It comprises three major elements –
|1.||“The Yuto School (魚肚學校)”|
