Croucher Science Week 2022 returns in virtual format, bringing the wonders of science to town

Croucher Science Week 2022, jointly organised by the Croucher Foundation, The Education Bureau, and the Hong Kong Science Museum, returns in virtual format for 2022, bringing enthusiastic scientists and talent from around the world to present programmes that will inspire young scientists. With the vision of making science education accessible to all, online event programmes will run from 23 March to 22 April 2022,  for both schools and members of the public to access for free, so that the wonders of science can be celebrated and enjoyed by all.

To inspire the public to discover science in their everyday life, this year’s flagship programmes feature four themed pillars including: Hands-on Science at Home, Food Chemistry, Magic and Science, and Global Wildlife. The programmes are interactive and are conducted through live science shows, hands-on demonstrations, outdoor tours and talks, all available in an online format using materials that can be easily found at home.

Featured Programme Themes

  • Hands-on Science: Hosted by The Royal Institution, participants can follow scientists as they carry out experiments step-by-step. Whilst Ghost Bubbles explores the strange and slightly spooky behaviour of carbon dioxide gas, Good Vibrations discusses how to build super-strong constructs. An array of exhilarating shows and activities have also been tailored to take place in the kitchen, so people can discover the secrets of science at home.
  • Food Chemistry: Youngsters can join scientists from Fizzics Education to learn more about mixing substances in Chemical Caper, or conduct experiments around edible chemistry and biology in Science of Sweets with Stefan Gates from specialist food and science media company The Gastronaut.
  • Magic and Science: Understanding how science can blend with seemingly unscientific magic tricks, world-renowned magician and science educator Jason Latimer will reveal how to make objects invisible and shape water in a mini science show called The Right Questions Change Everything! As the winner of Grand Prix ‘Best Overall’ World Champion of Magic, Jason has created Impossible Science, the academic platform that unites magic and science for education. In addition, professional science communicator and magician Eddie Goldstein and Hong Kong stage performer Ana Yau will deliver The Magical Maths Show, revealing mathematical secrets behind fun-filled magic tricks.
  • Global Wildlife: Young aspiring scientists can join The Jungle World to learn more about animals, especially those living in the jungle. They can also gain insights on how species survive in winter habitats by signing up for The Winter World.
