      EVENT DETAILS
      Croucher Science Week 2019

      Croucher Science Week 2019 will be held from 1st April to 14th April. Croucher Science Week is funded by the Croucher Foundation, and is jointly organised by the Croucher Foundation, the Education Bureau and the Hong Kong Science Museum.

      This year, Croucher Science Week has invited groups of professional science communicators from around the world to engage Hong Kong audiences in a series of science activities, including Australian Museum from Australia, Croucher Scholars from HK, Science Circus from USA, and Anturus, Science Museum Group and The Ministry of Science Group from the UK.

      Croucher Science Week creates public programmes for families and the general public to experience the excitement of science! Public programmes include Drop-in Activities, Street Science Shows, Theatre Science Shows and Family Workshops. Theatre Science Shows will be held at the Hong Kong Science Museum from 12th April to 14th April. The public can register the programmes starting from 21st February.

      · Science Circus
      The Science Circus is a goofy battle between playfulness and the laws of physics. Audiences will giggle as juggler Rhys Thomas tries to outwit gravity with a bowling ball and a feather, marvel as he turns a sphere into a gyroscope that keeps stable on a kid’s finger, and laugh as he tries to balance on a tall unicycle, does cowboy rope tricks and daringly risks his mum’s plates in a throw-down with inertia! It’s a battle everyone wins as they come away understanding the physics of fun.

      · Super Science!
      Anyone who thinks science is boring is about to have their eyes opened. In a fun-filled show, packed with facts and stats, the Ministry of Science team will demonstrate a raft of cool experiments, including how chemicals react in surprising ways, some “shocking” results from physics, and

      · What's it Like Being a Scientist?
      Science is fascinating. It brings wonder and understanding to the world. But, what is it like to be a scientist? In this entertaining show, you will meet scientists who will re-enact one of the greatest scientific experiments of all time - Galileo’s Leaning Tower of Pisa experiment. They will let you in on what it feels like to be a scientist doing cutting-edge research in modern day Hong Kong – and will lead the entire audience in a scientific experiment that everyone can do! (The show is conducted in Cantonese)

      A list of fruitful school programmes is also ready for schools to participate. Programmes at the museum include Theatre Science Shows, Interactive Talks and Teacher Development Workshops, which are suitable for primary and junior secondary school students and teachers.

      Croucher Science Week will also bring School Tour Shows to various schools from 1st April to 12th April! It Takes Guts will bring students along the journey of food in our digestive system; Feel The Force will explore the different forces that shape our world; finally, The Minis Try Science will showcase principles behind general sciences with the aid of fascinating tools. Schools can register the school programmes starting from 21st February!

      Come and join us in Croucher Science Week 2019! Let’s explore, discover and find fun in science!
