What's it Like Being a Scientist?

Science is fascinating. It brings wonder and understanding to the world. But, what is it like to be a scientist? In this entertaining show, you'll meet scientists who will re-enact one of the greatest scientific experiments of all time - Galileo’s Leaning Tower of Pisa experiment. They will let you in on what it feels like to be a scientist doing cutting-edge research in modern day Hong Kong – and will lead the entire audience in a scientific experiment that everyone can do! This show is conducted in Cantonese.

Little Bang, Big Bang

See Nanogirl in the explosive Nanogirl Live! “Little Bang, Big Bang”, coming to the Croucher Science Week. Join Nanogirl and her trusty lab assistant for science as you've never seen it before. Explosions (lots of explosions!), smoke cannons and fireballs – science and engineering will come to life in the coolest ways possible, right before your eyes. Nanogirl will explain the science behind each experiment in a way that’s fun and easy to understand. We will start with a small experiment to explain each idea (the Little Bang) - often with the help of a volunteer from the audience; then Nanogirl takes the same principle and cranks it up to BIG BANG scale!
