Professor Selina Chan's research project on intangible cultural heritage has led to the construction of a “Virtual Museum of National Intangible Cultural Heritage: Adaptation of Buddhist Sam Kok Pier Hungry Ghosts Festival under COVID-19 Pandemic” (國家級非物質文化遺產虛擬博物館：疫情下佛教三角碼頭盂蘭勝會的變奏). The virtual museum was selected as a showcase of the STEM Research InnoTech Expo 2022, organized by Our Hong Kong Foundation. This year's InnoTech Expo is themed under the National Sci-tech Accomplishments of the 13th Five-Year Plan and celebrated with the 25th Anniversary of the Establishment of the HKSAR. This exhibition aims to demonstrate the national scientific research projects, strengthen Hong Kong People's understanding of national Innovation and Technology (InnoTech), nurture people's interests on InnoTech, and cultivate the national pride of the Hong Kong people. Among the 54 nominations submitted from 10 universities and 6 institutions locally, 25 projects were selected. The Virtual Museum is the only shortlisted project from the non-government funded tertiary educational institutions. It would be displayed under the “Culture and Smart Living” category. This project demonstrates how Hong Kong Shue Yan University performs public education on Chinese heritage and reinvents Liberal Arts University education through research-informed, technology-enabled teaching. The Expo expects an audience of more than 100,000, which mainly includes secondary students and the general public.
