Event Schedule

M13a | Fun Science Exploration (Primary & Secondary)


Teachers can select activities according to the interest of their students and freely guide them through the exhibits in the Museum.

Activity 1: Science Demonstration (Compulsory)

Odd months: Laboratory in Chaos
Dr. Crazy of Science Museum will perform various breathtaking experiments such as hydrogen explosion and fireball blowing! Are you bold enough to accept the mission?

Even months: The Fun of Static Electricity
Have you ever had an electric shock by static electricity before? In this science demonstration, you can learn about the power of high static electricity using a Van de Graaff generator.

*Activity 2: Science Excursion
(Schools can select to visit at most two galleries.)

Docents will lead students through designated galleries and provide explanations to enhance students’ understanding of science in our daily lives.

Galleries for selection:
- Motion and Sound
- Light and World of Mirrors
- Jockey Club Environmental Conservation Gallery
- Biodiversity Gallery
- Palaeontology Gallery (NEW)
- Electricity and Magnetism Gallery
- Earth Science Gallery

*Activity 3: Exploration Activity
(Suitable for P.4-6 students)

Students will conduct a series of interesting hands-on experiments. Through the inquiry process, students can enhance scientific thinking and develop science process skills.

October to December : Newton's Laws of Motion
Newton's laws of motion are closely related to our daily lives. Let's test
them out.

January to March: Visible Sound
Through different experiments, students can understand how sound is
produced, how fast it travels, and how to play music with resonance.

April to May: Optics Wonderland
Through a series of optical experiments, students can learn the properties of light and colour, such as light spectrum, seven colours of light, three primary colours, and understand how colour blind people see the world.

June: Amazing Electricity & Magnetism
Students can learn the science of electricity and magnetism by conducting a series of experiments such as bicycle generator, lemon battery and electromagnet.

*Activity 4: Science Workshop
(Suitable for primary school students)

To arouse students' curiosity in science, this workshop will introduce science knowledge through interactive games and fun demonstrations.

Odd months: Junior Palaeontologist
How do palaeontologists find clues about the characteristics and habits of ancient creatures from fossils? Students can learn about fun facts of different ancient creatures through interactive games.

Even months: Butterfly Watch
Butterflies are the second largest order among all insect groups. They are extremely diverse in terms of morphology and colour. What is the secret of their survival strategy? This workshop will tell you all about the senses and habits of butterflies, and the common butterfly species in Hong Kong.

*Activity 5: Interactive Technology Experience Activity
(Suitable for P.4-S.3 students)

With the aid of VR (Virtual Reality) technology, students can conduct different experiments in the virtual world and safely explore various possibilities. Learning science can be so much fun! 

*The activities are arranged with quotas and on a first come, first served basis.  The Museum will inform participating schools about details of the arrangement nearer the time.
