M10 | Science Demonstration and Variety Programmes (In Cantonese) (Completed)parent


The programmes include various activities that are suitable for students with different levels. Teachers can select the activities according to the interest of their students and guide them to visit the exhibits at the venue freely.

Activity 1: Science Demonstration (Compulsory activity)

Throughout the history, scientists explore the laws of the 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 demonstrate different breathtaking experiments such as hydrogen explosion and blowing a fireball! He will also invite smart students to assist in performing the experiments. Do you dare to accept the mission?

Odd months: The Fun of Static

Electricity In this science demonstration, students can learn about the power of static electricity by using a Van de Graaff generator.

Activity 2: Science Track*

This is a guided tour 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: Selected Track*

These guided tours will be conducted by experienced docents with an aim to arouse 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 learnt. (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 in this Gallery introduce the facts and explain the principles behind the subjects 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" and "Satellite Communications" 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.

Activity 4: Exploring 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

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

There are three Newton's laws of motion that are closely related to our lives. Let's test them out today.

Activity 5: Biodiversity Workshop - Colourful Nature*

Through simple experiments and specimen observation, the workshop will introduce the mechanisms of two different colour formation (pigmentary colour and structural colour) and explore how living things communicate using colour.

Activity 6: Film Show*

A number of educational science films are selected, enabling students to explore the mystery of science.

*The activities are arranged with quotas and on a first come, first served basis. Participating schools will be informed the details of activities at a later date.
