HKU Main Campus 

The Hong Kong Biodiversity Museum (HKBM) is the first museum in Hong Kong that is dedicated to biodiversity. With over 15,000 specimens, the HKBM hosts the largest and most comprehensive biodiversity collection within Hong Kong. In the visit, you will be offered an immersive experience into this incredible diversity and learn about related environmental issues.


Workshop and Demonstration on the Miscroscopic World
by Department of Chemistry
Science Workshop, Demonstration and Guided Tour/Laboratory Visit
Date:October 11, 2022/ March 7, 2023Chemistry lab2
Time:3pm - 4:30pm
Venue:Chong Yuet Ming Chemistry Building, HKU Main Campus
Nanotechnology is at the frontier of chemistry, biology, biophysics, materials science, and engineering. Electronics, energy, construction, medicine, agriculture, consumer products, and even fashion all benefit from nanoscale innovations. In this hands-on campus visit, we will synthesise some nanomaterials and characterise them under an electronic microscope. So get ready and dive into the microscopic world.


Let There Be Light: The Chemistry of luminescence
by Department of Chemistry
Science Talk, Workshop/Demonstration and Guided Tour/Laboratory Visit
Date:October 13, 2022/ March 9, 2023Chemistry lab
Time:3pm - 4:30pm
Venue:Chong Yuet Ming Chemistry Building, HKU Main Campus
The ability to produce light always fascinates humankind. In this campus visit, we will conduct several hands-on activities to explore the chemistry of luminescence. We will introduce students to the basic concepts of light, the electromagnetic spectrum, and Light-matter interactions such as colour, absorption, and luminescence. Through this visit, students will understand the phenomenon of luminescence of organic and inorganic molecules, some of which are found in our daily lives. A brief introduction to luminescent nanomaterials and their applications in new technologies will also be given.


**Please note that teacher(s) shall be included in all capacity requirements listed above.**
