Sponsored by the Croucher Foundation, the Hong Kong Science Museum, the British Council, the Education Bureau and the Hong Kong Education City Limited jointly organised the Science Alive 2012 activities in November 2012. This programme invited distinguished academics from the UK to present lectures and workshops. The theme of Science Alive was simply 2012 - a year full of promises, full of celebrations, and full of human and technological potential, such as the Alan Turing Year, which marked the centenary of the father of computer science Alan Turing's birth, as well as the London 2012 Olympic Games. It encouraged students and teachers to learn science knowledge in an interactive approach under a lively and enjoyable atmosphere.
Lectures and Teacher & Student Workshops are two core activities of Science Alive. Distinguished academics presented a series of science lectures and workshops with interactive science demonstrations. Other interesting activities included the Science Drama Show, Students Debate and Interactive Sports Exhibition, presented in a vivid and stunning way to foster students in exploring science.
