VISUALIZING SCIENCE VIA CREATIVE LENS & INTERACTIVE ART

Dr. Benny Ng initiated the project and he is the project director for Science and Art Crossover Programme I and II.

 

This project aimed to visualize science in an artistic and interactive manner through the following activities:

 

1.      A One-day Programme – interesting hands-on workshops and talks about how science displayed in different art forms were offered to 180 junior secondary school students from 66 different schools;


2.      Science & Art Crossover Exhibition – Students’ artworks made during the workshops were exhibited in 13 locations including HK International Airport with an estimated close to 10 million visitors

The project was granted a fund of HK$170,000 in total by the HKU KE Office and fundraised over HK$15,000.  It also generated 17 newspaper and magazine articles with a total circulation of over 2.2 million readers and Ad-value over HK$756,000. Dr. Benny Ng and his team were awarded the University-wide Faculty Knowledge Exchange Award 2014.
