Bearing the mission to promote science among people from all disciplines and to nurture a wider understanding of the field, especially amongst teachers and students, the British Council is committed to organizing the annual mega event, the Science Alive (SA). It is sponsored by the Croucher Foundation and jointly organized by the Education Bureau, LCSD, Hong Kong Science Museum and the Hong Kong Education City Limited.
Every year, Science Alive invites leading UK academics and communicators in the various fields of science to engage Hong Kong’s students, teachers and the public in activities that promote a wider understanding of science. To ensure more target groups are engaged in this anniversary celebration, the SA programme is developed with the slogan ‘learning science is fun’ in mind. How it does this is through an array of strategies aiming to make it lively and interactive (hence, making science “alive”) and all the programmes are free of charge.
2011 also marks the 20th anniversary of Science Alive in Hong Kong. Apart from continued support made by the partners and sponsors, special thanks must go to the many teacher, student and parent participants who help bring ‘science alive’.
Readers are welcome to take a glance at some of the archive photos in SA 2010 below and for sure all can sense the fun elicited in the events.
