About SMArt


The Faculty of Science of The University of Hong Kong (the Faculty) is dedicated to enhancing scientific literacy among the community and nurturing our younger generation’s interest in science. The SMArt (Science, Mathematics and Art) Programme co-organized by the Faculty and Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP) aims to achieve these objectives via offering to secondary school students hands-on workshops that connect science, mathematics and art together. We would like to inspire more junior secondary school students to be more well-rounded and appreciate the connection between science, mathematics and art through the following activities: 

1.      The SMART Weekend (January 16, 2016 at HKU and January 17, 2016 at HKSTP) – This programme is to be offered to F.1 to F.3 students of local schools (Y.7 to Y.9 students of international schools). It consists of (a) interactive lectures delivered by our professors on relevant scientific research and its impact, (b) live demonstrations, and (c) five hands-on workshops integrating science, mathematics and art for participants to choose from;

2.       The SMART Exhibition (January – June, 2016) – After the above programme, we will hold a series of exhibitions to showcase the artworks created by our participants.  In the exhibitions, general audiences will learn and appreciate the involved science through viewing the artworks and reading our written explanations of the underlying theories or phenomena on the posters or pamphlets.  Selected artworks will be displayed in the MTR Central Station from March 1 to March 31, 2016.

Fee: $300 (will be collected after accepting the offer)
