Programme Title: Fun Science Competition 2013 - "Drips Down a Vine" video highlights
Programme Description: The objective of "Fun Science Competition" is to design and produce a device to solve a particular problem.  For this year's competition, "Drips Down a Vine", the participants had to design a device carrying five table tennis balls that moved along a wire and dropped the balls into five different containers in order to get scores.  There were two groups - the powered device group and non-powered device group.  For the powered device group, the participants had to design a non-electric powered device. While in the non-powered device group, the device should move downward by a slope of 1:100.

There were 145 teams participated in this competition. They used their knowledge in science, technology and art to produce different devices that were full of creativity.  The competition was finally ended with joy and fun.
