Any non-profit making organisations registered in Hong Kong are eligible to apply. This programme will last for 1 hour 30 minutes. It covers two parts including an experiment session and a museum guided tour. The programmes are tailored for the elderly and will be presented by our experienced docents. Visiting groups may choose from the following titles:

Reminiscences of Childhood Toys

Reminiscences of Childhood Toys
Tradition Chinese toys like bamboo pop guns, tops and tumblers once gave many of us good times in our childhood. But have you ever thought that there is a lot of science behind such toys? Besides introducing the scientific principles of these toys, the programme also let the participants play with the toys or their "enhanced" version. At the end of the activity, the participants will make simple and interesting scientific toys of their own.

Science in Kitchen

Science in Kitchen
Many materials found in the kitchen can become ingredients of interesting science experiments. For example, do you know that other than for washing dishes, we can use detergents to play a speed boat game? Have you ever heard of paper kettle? Would you like to know the secrets of red cabbage? Even something as common as eggs are good materials for many experiments. In this "Lab Programmes for the Elderly", participants can make use of common materials in the kitchen to uncover the secret of "Science in Kitchen".

For enquiries or make appointments, please feel free to contact Ms. Lau at 2732 3223 within office hours (Monday to Friday: 9:00am to 1:00pm, 2:00pm to 5:00pm).

Programmes are conducted in Cantonese.
