Reminisce the Year of Oak Anniversary

anniversary wrap up banner
2019 marks the 80th birthday of HKU Science. The Faculty has walked through many ups and downs in the past 8 decades. These turn to be sustenance for our roots and trunk to grow deeper and stronger. With our branches reaching out far and new leaves germinating, we are growing fast into a lush green forest, aiming high with ambitious developments in the years ahead. This year we have achieved a lot and our smiley faces over the accomplishments are just like blossoming oak flowers. Let’s reminisce the precious moments of HKU Science family together.

Anniversary theme song – When Acorn Becomes A Mighty Oak

Music is the universal language that connects everyone. Our talented teacher, Dr Timothy Bonebrake from School of Biological Sciences, composed this anniversary theme song for our Gala Dinner, allowing us to recall the anniversary with a chilling melody. It is a shame we could not debut it as the Dinner was cancelled due to the fluid situation of HK recently. Nevertheless, we still want to take this opportunity to present this fabulous song to you. Let music fill the air!

Those were the days

Members of HKU Science walk different paths in life and they excel in many industries around the globe. Their journeys are unique yet they share the same starting point – HKU Science, where they grew, learnt and made lifelong friends.

80 science stories

80 Science stories

We only live once with our own unique lives; yet we can always be inspired by reading others’ stories. 80 Science stories are the collection of stories from HKU Science alumni, students and teachers. We wish these stories could arouse resonance among HKU Science members and Science family could reconnect and exchange.
