Let see what the team leader PANG Tak Hing says:

“Participating in this year’s Chemistry Olympid is a challenging and fruitful experience. In the preparation of powerpoint, not only did we have to search the material related to the forgery of jewelry, but also distinguish different types of forgery which led to lengthy dispute in our working team. In order to make our presentation smoother, the three presenters performed numerous rehearsals in the matchday morning. It was very amazing to see that our team did much during these 48 hours before the match (We received the presentation topic 48 hours before the presentation). To my teammates, thanks for your effort these days!
Thanks Professor Liu Zhifeng, Dr. Chan Wing Fat as our programme coordinator and gave us much feedback and thanks Dr. Cheung Yu San for accompanying with us. Also, we have to express gratitude to other teaching staff in our department who also came to discuss the detail with us at night.
