Distinguished Lecture Series on Applications of Mathematics in STEAM World

Background

Mathematics and its applications pervade all aspects of life in the modern world. The developments in various disciplines, technology and fields highly rely on the use of mathematics. To promote the latest real-life applications of mathematics, the Mathematics Education Section of EDB invites distinguished experts and scholars in various fields to conduct Distinguished Lecture Series on Applications of Mathematics in STEAM world from 2022/23 to 2024/25 school years, so as to enhance teachers’ knowledge of frontier applications of mathematics and making connections between mathematics and real life.


Fourth Distinguished Lecture: Mathematical Modelling in Materials Science: From Theory Practice to Business Start-up


Programme Description

i2Cool Limited is co-founded by Dr Martin Zhu and his doctoral supervisor Prof TSO Chi-yan, along with their research team, at the City University of Hong Kong. The core technology of i2Cool is a passive radiative cooling technology developed by the team, which has been granted a patent in Hong Kong. Drawing inspiration from the hair structure of ants found in the Sahara Desert, the research team has created a paint that does not require refrigerants and has zero energy consumption. This paint achieves effective cooling effects, reduces air conditioning energy consumption, and contributes to energy saving, emission reduction, and low-carbon development.

In this lecture, Prof TSO and Dr Zhu will use the examples of innovation and technology, and start-up companies to illustrate the importance of mathematical modeling in practical applications, and assist participants in gaining a better understanding of how to apply mathematical knowledge to scientific research and business development.


Date: 1 March 2024 (Friday)

Time: 2:30 – 5 p.m.

Venue: Wong Cheung Lo Hui Yuet Hall, 5/F, Lau Ming Wai Academic Building, City University of Hong Kong
