Programme Officer

Croucher Foundation is an independent private foundation dedicated to promoting the standard of the natural sciences, technology and medicine in Hong Kong. Since 1979 we have awarded over a thousand postgraduate and postdoctoral scholarships to Hong Kong students, supporting them as they explore some of the biggest challenges in science.

Croucher Science Week is an annual science festival held every spring in Hong Kong. It is produced by the Croucher Foundation, and is jointly organised with the HKSAR Education Bureau, and the Hong Kong Science Museum (managed by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department of the HKSAR). Since its launch in 2018 the event has inspired thousands of students and children.

The objective of Croucher Science Week is to raise science literacy within society and bridging the gap between scientists and the younger generation. Science plays a fundamental role in our lives. We believe everyone deserves to be inspired by science and that science education should be made available to all. We hope to nurture scientific curiosity and make science relevant in the daily lives of our younger generation.
