What we're about
With over 100 years of heritage, and in the spirit of innovation fostered by one of our founders, Thomas Edison, Intertek (www.intertek.com) is committed to nurturing its people by encouraging them to rise to different challenges and reach new heights. Intertek HK is proud therefore to offer its first educational program: The Little Scientists Program for children. We run Little Scientists Workshops offering various parent-child activities incorporating experiential learning. Fundamental scientific knowledge can be gained through educational and fun experiments which you will carry out together with your children.
LITTLE SCIENTISTS EXPERIMENTS Balloons Reaction – Chemistry
Blow up balloons, not with your mouth but through chemical reaction! Each family will be provided with materials necessary to create a chemical reaction which will release gases to blow up a balloon. Small Organism Discovery – Microbiology
Do you know organism can be everywhere? Look for them with a professional microscope. Magnetic Train Creation – Physics
Learn about magnetic forces and friction through action. Build a magnetic train model with your children and see how fast it can go. *All experiments will be guided by our engineers, biologists and chemists in a safe environment. Intertek reserves the right to change the experiments for the Workshops without prior notice.
