• Magical Eggs

    With Easter coming soon, let’s prepare some Easter eggs! It’s not very challenging to simply paint them, so how about we look at making eggs in a scientific way? In this workshop, Dr Au-Yeung Ho Yu, Assistant Professor at the Department of Chemistry in the University of Hong Kong, introduces the scientific principles behind the magical transformations involving eggs. Join the investigation and take home your very own Easter eggs!

  • Catch!

    Juggler Rhys Thomas leads you through a series of challenges that reveal the beauty of juggling with maths and the constant acceleration of gravity. More insights into the 4,000-year-old pastime of juggling help you explore how air pushes back, why some things balance and others don’t, and the intriguing nature of inertia.

  • The Exploration Station

    Come with Anturus on a journey around the world! Looking at some of the craziest scientific phenomena on the planet: geysers that spew water high into the air, tornados made out of fire, and volcanos that create lightning clouds – our planet has it all! At the Exploration Station, we will delve into the science behind these amazing places with live action demonstrations and interactive experiments. Come explore the outside world – inside with us at the Exploration Station!

  • The Magical Math and Science Show

    Eddie Goldstein’s Magical Math and Science Show uses magic, comedy and juggling to blow your mind with amazing topics in maths and science. You’ll learn the scientific secrets behind mystifying magic tricks. You’ll see how magicians use maths to read people’s minds. You’ll discover that juggling devil sticks helps explain how the Moon orbits the Earth. And lots more. Best of all, you will have fun, fun, fun.

  • Swing & Smash

    Anyone who thinks science is boring is about to have their eyes stretched wide open. This special show contains lots of those fun and naughty experiments we can only see on TV! Croucher Scholars deliver an unforgettable collection of live demonstrations – swinging and smashing to explore the forces that shape our world! Be prepared to get involved, get excited, get wet and get inspired! This show is written by Eddie Goldstein, a veteran science educator from the United States.
  • Space Adventures

    Who hasn’t dreamed of visiting the moon or one of the planets? But the distances between all the planets are so mind-bogglingly huge, how can we ever hope to get there? Scientists are exploring the outer edges of our solar system using robotic explorers, while space agencies are developing plans to send humans to other planets. So if we’re going to explore other planets, moons and chunks of rock, which are the best to go to? In this imagination-defying interactive show, join adventure astronomer Huw James as we find out where we’ll be having space adventures in the not so distant future.
  • Magical Substance

    What substance can be fluffy, squishy and stretchy all at the same time, and is loads of fun to play with? The answer – slime! Slime is a strange substance: left to its own devices, it oozes like a liquid; give it a push or a pull, and it's stiff like a solid. During Croucher Science Week, the Science Museum Group from the UK is running a fascinating drop-in activity to introduce the science behind slime at the Hong Kong Science Museum. We will look at materials around us and their states of matter, how they change and transform, and make use of these states of matter to create your very own slippery slime to take home at the end of the day.
  • Teacher Development Workshop

    The Science Museum Group Academy will share a range of practical approaches to help you engage your students with science in this workshop. Using tried and tested resources, we will explore ideas for connecting classroom learning with your students’ everyday lives to demonstrate the relevance of science and methods for developing skills that are useful for science. All of our courses are hands-on, teachers will be able to apply the techniques learnt in the workshop in class.

  • Out of This World

    From exciting rocket launches, to searches for alien life, to exploring the solar system, the Science Museum Group will deliver an action-packed immersion in the journey of an astronaut. Discover what it takes to be an astronaut, from the weird food and amazing space suits to the water that they use over and over. Learn how to launch a rocket, how to make space food and where the best places might be to search for alien life. Buckle up for the powerful rocket launch through the freezing atmosphere into the vastness of space, this show brings you up close to the final frontier of space travel.
  • Science Circus

    The Science Circus is a battle between playfulness and the laws of physics. Students 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 student’s finger, and cheer as he coaxes nine boxes to balance, uses centripetal force to spin a cowboy rope and risks his mom’s plates in a throw-down with inertia! It’s a battle everyone wins as you come away appreciating the physics of fun.
