SciPOP Science Demonstration Contest 2022

Objective

To foster the pursuit of science knowledge among secondary school students, to enhance their presentation and communication skills, and to nurture young scientists in Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Science Museum and the Education Bureau are jointly organising the SciPOP Science Demonstration Contest and the Young Scientists Study Tour in 2022.

Earth science is a multidisciplinary science and its purpose is to study the Earth, including the solid earth, the atmosphere, the oceans, the biosphere, and their interactions as well as impacts of human activities on Earth's natural environment. In order to promote student's interest and to broaden their knowledge of the subject and to complement the opening of Earth Science Gallery, we are organising the programme with the theme of "Earth Science".
