M13a | Fun Science Exploration (Primary & Secondary) (In Cantonese)(Some sessions cancelled)


The programmes include various activities which are suitable for students of different levels. 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 activity)
Throughout history, scientists explore the laws of nature through experiments and help to improve our lives. This demonstration introduces some scientific phenomena in our daily lives through a series of interesting activities.

Even months: Laboratory in Chaos
Dr. Crazy of Science Museum will perform various breathtaking experiments such as hydrogen explosion and fireball blowing! He will also invite smart students to assist him. Are you bold enough to accept the mission?

Odd months: The Fun of Static Electricity
In this science demonstration, students can learn about the power of high static electricity using a Van de Graaff generator.

Activity 2: Science Excursion*
This guided tour is specially designed for students. Conducted by experienced docents, the tour aims to arouse students’ interest in learning science and exhibits related to the curriculum topics will be introduced.

Activity 3: Highlighted Tours*
These guided tours will be conducted by experienced docents with the aim of arousing students’ awareness on science in our daily lives. Relevant activity sheets are available for download on the museum website. Students are encouraged to complete the activity sheets after the guided tours so as to consolidate the knowledge learned.
(Each session is about 30 minutes. Schools can select to visit at most two galleries.)

E&M Gallery
Unravelling the various phenomena of electricity and magnetism, the elegantly designed interactive exhibits of this Gallery introduce the facts and explain the principles behind the topics in a simple and light-hearted way.

Telecommunications Gallery
This gallery introduces the development of telecommunications technologies, from "Telegraphy", "Telephony" to "Radio Communications" and "Optical Fibre". The science behind "Local Mobile Technology", "Satellite Communications", and artificial intelligent robots “Robohelpers” will be explained.

Jockey Club Environmental Conservation Gallery
This gallery aims to illustrate the importance of environmental conservation to the community; promote a better understanding of the global environment and the delicate balance between nature and human. Visitors are encouraged to adopt sustainable lifestyles and to use our natural resources wisely.

Biodiversity Gallery
The gallery introduces iconic species in marine and terrestrial habitats in Hong Kong, the natural environment in the world, evolutionary process, and display of a diversity of specimens. Students can develop an understanding of the uniqueness and importance of biodiversity.

Earth Science Gallery (NEW)
The gallery explains the causes of natural phenomena such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, as well as the power of typhoons by featuring interactive exhibits, models and installations. The gallery will also take you through the geology of Hong Kong over the past 400 million years and the stunning scenery of the Hong Kong Geopark.

Activity 4: Exploration Activity*
This activity allows students to gain hands-on experience in conducting experiments. Students will conduct a series of interesting experiments and learn the underlying principles.

Even months: Visible sound (NEW)
Through different experiments, students can understand how sound is produced, how fast it travels, and how to play music with resonance.

Odd months: Newton's laws of motion (NEW)
Newton's laws of motion are closely related to our daily lives. Let's test them out.

Activity 5: Biodiversity Workshop*
Colourful Nature
Through simple experiments and specimen observation, the workshop will introduce the mechanisms of two different colour formation, including pigmentary colour and structural colour, and explore how living things communicate using colour.

* 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 at a later date.
