The Hong Kong Biodiversity Museum,
Room 2S-18, 2/F, Kadoorie Biological Sciences Building,  
HKU Main Campus 

Located within a subtropical region, Hong Kong harbours a rich diversity of animal and plant species. The Hong Kong Biodiversity Museum, with over 16,000 specimens, is the first museum in the city offering an immersive experience into this incredible diversity and teaching you about related environmental issues.


Let there be light: The Chemistry of luminescence
by Department of Chemistry
Science Talk, Workshop/Demonstration and Guided Tour/Laboratory Visit
Date:October 17, 2023/ March 5, 2024Chemistry lab
Time:3pm - 4:30pm
Venue:Chong Yuet Ming Chemistry Building, HKU Main Campus
The ability to produce light always fascinates humankind. In this workshop, 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 workshop, 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.
The Miscroscopic World
by Department of Chemistry
Science Workshop, Demonstration and Guided Tour/Laboratory Visit
Date:October 18, 2023/ March 6, 2024Chemistry 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 workshop, we will synthesize some nanomaterials and characterize them under an electronic microscope. So get ready and dive into the microscopic world.
