Mobile Quiz Tests Games Knowledge

An Inter-school mobile quiz contest organized by the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Hong Kong University that aims to promote mobile learning as well as to celebrate the Beijing Olympic Games is now open to registration by schools.

Primary and secondary school students will be able to test their knowledge of the Olympics and about HKU, while also deepening their understanding of mobile learning through the contest.

The contest is scheduled on Tuesday, July 8, from 1.30pm to 5pm at Rayson Huang Theatre at HKU.

Each school can nominate four to six students and they will be required to answer a series of quizzes on mobile devices. The student who answers the most questions will be declared as the champion.

There are individual awards and accolades for schools as well.

Due to the limitations of space and portable devices, only 20 schools will be drawn and shortlisted for the contest. Shortlisted schools will be notified on 16May, 2008. Details will be announced to shortlisted schools once they complete online registration, which ends on 10May, 2008.
