Scitech showcased at Croucher Science Week in Hong Kong

Our science shows and professional learning workshops were a hit with international audiences at this week long festival of science.

Scitech was honoured to be invited to be part of Croucher Science Week, a science festival organised by the Croucher Foundation and hosted at the Hong Kong Science Museum with the aim of bringing science closer to the everyday lives of young people. 

Theatres Coordinator Adam Bennett and Professional Learning Consultant Lucas Black represented Scitech at the festival with Adam performing the science show Mystery Hunters and Lucas conducting the Mystery of the Mathematical Menace workshop which gets parents and children working together on problem solving puzzles, and Powerful Problem Solving in Science workshops for educators. 

Adam and Lucas said it was an amazing experience to be able to connect with the Hong Kong Science Museum and their visitors and audiences as well as with other science organisations from around the world attending the festival such as the Royal Institution from London. 

“People were really impressed with the breadth of what we do at Scitech, as well as how we ask our audience questions and engage them in discussion throughout, rather than present and wait for questions as the end,” Adam said. 

“I had an incredible translator for my Mystery Hunters shows who is actually a drama teacher and she became such a part of the performance that by the end of the run we had come up with a whole routine.” 

Lucas said it was great to see how Scitech shows and workshops appeal to children across different cultures. 

“It really showed that kids are kids, and they all wanted to get hands-on, ask questions and were really engaged. In fact, the Hong Kong audience was probably even more enthusiastic to be part of the science show than Western Australian audiences!” Lucas said. 

“The teacher workshops were about incorporating problem solving activities into the classroom to help students become more independent learners, and the participants really responded to the concepts and wanted to get in contact with us afterwards to learn more.” 

Being part of the Croucher Science Festival offered a valuable opportunity to showcase what Scitech does on a global stage and engage international audiences in our interactive and fun science experiences for children and adults alike.
