Visit to The Hong Kong Science Museum

A School Visit to the Science Museum 2017

On 18 February, 9 English Ambassadors found themselves at the Hong Kong Science Museum.  The students were pleasantly surprised to find out that over 70 per cent of the Hong Kong Science Museum’s 500 exhibits are hands-on, meaning you can literally play around with a broad spectrum of cool topics, including robotics, virtual reality and transportation. You can read about our students’ experiences below:

On 18 February, I visited the Science Museum with my teacher and classmates. We had a great time at the Science Museum. 

It was my first time I had ever been to the Science Museum so I felt excited before I went there. I was curious about many things there. What impressed me the most are the Food Exhibition and the Mirror Zone.

At the Food Exhibition, I explored more about food. I have learnt that if we eat one pack of chocolate, we should run for 23 minutes to consume the calories. Therefore, it is not a good idea to eat too much chocolate. Otherwise, we will get obese very easily.

At the Mirror Zone, I saw a wide range of mirrors which were very interesting. 

I enjoyed this visit a lot and would definitely recommend this museum to my friends!

I have been to the science museum before, and I think that is the most interesting museum among the others in town as it has a variety of exhibitions and most of them are open to the public so that they are able to explore and enhance the knowledge of science. Visiting the science museum is a great experience for us to learn more about science i.e. physics, biology, chemistry etc. There were different galleries and exhibition halls including Life Science, Food Science, Biodiversity etc.

My favourite galleries are Life Science and Food Science. The first reason is that they are strongly related to my life. As for the food gallery, it tells more about the food that we consume in our daily lives and how much exercise we have to do to compensate for the daily calorie intake.

Our body system is very complex, if we don't study biology,it's difficult for us to tell  how a proper organ functions. A visit to the Life gallery gave me an insight into the structure of a human body and functions of different organs. I learnt a lot about the human body at the museum and this aroused my interest in biology. You never know one day I might become a scientist!

We visited the Science Museum on 18 February 2017 and we had such a great fun there!

Although Hong Kong Science Museum is very small, there are a lot of things displayed such as dinosaurs, a car engine, models illustrating electricity etc. I was so excited to see all these things on the day.  My favourite categories at the Science Museum are the electric and the electrical devices partially because I am interested in electricity.

It is a wonderful way to explore science through English and find out more about other things that we do not normally face with in our daily lives!

If I were given a second chance, I would definitely choose the science museum as it provided a good opportunity to learn new things with other English Ambassadors and the teacher together!!!

So, I really enjoyed this visit to the Science Museum and I can’t wait for the coming field trip to begin.

I think a visit to the Science Museum was one of the fascinating experiences I had ever have before. I learned more about science.

Firstly, I went to the Science News Corner. It was full of science research projects conducted by local universities, involving new discoveries and the latest technologies. It helps to keep the public abreast of the latest science news.

Secondly, I went to visit the Food Science .gallery. The main idea there was to analyze the ingredients contained in food and show the relationship between a balanced diet and health. You can watch a series of videos in the Process Theatre to understand the modern production of moon cakes or ice cream. Or you can choose several kinds of food and then practise cycling in the ‘Food is Fuel’ exhibit to see how much energy is spent and what the constituents of the food are.

Lastly, I visited the Life Science .The Life Science Exhibition Hall illustrates the wonders of life. It covers different aspects of life sciences including prehistoric life, structures of human bodies and functions of the organs, bones of human being as well as different animals, conventional and contemporary concepts in medical sciences, etc. Visitors could explore the mysteries of life sciences.

I was pleasantly surprised to learn so many things during my visit. I really enjoyed the visit to the Science Museum. This museum is definitely worth a visit.
