Welcome to 2020 Science and Technology Week!
The Science and Technology Week is lasting from 11-Feb to 17-Feb 2020. It consists of three parts. All Form One to Form Five students are encouraged to participate.

Firstly, it is "Video Watching". Two interesting science videos about "Science with you" are linked daily. They are broadcasted bilingually (Cantonese/English).
After watching videos, please login PowerLesson on the eClass platform and complete the "Programme Worksheet".

Next, it is about "Reading Across Curriculum". Each Form One to Form Five student is encouraged to read a science or technology or STEM book by 17-Feb 2020. Either an e-book or a hard copy book is welcome.
After reading books, please login PowerLesson on eClass platform and complete the "Reading Reflection Worksheet".

The last one is "A Question A Day!". Watch a daily life video on science and technology everyday.

作者簡介                                                              (Chinese content only)

李偉才:科幻小說為什麼令人着迷?
科幻追求的是什麼?驚訝讚歎之情(A sense of wonder)。科幻比科學多了故事性。我對科學的熱愛,也喜歡聽故事,接合起來就是科幻。科幻小說與其他小說不同,有知性上的激發。
科幻小說為2019年書展年度主題,大會邀請著名科普作家李偉才(筆名:李逆熵)出席講座,題為「嘆為觀止:科幻小說的無窮魅力」,分享科幻小說世界觀。以下為演講內容摘要:

何謂科幻小說?科幻小說由科學、幻想與小說構成。可以是消閒小說,也可以是偉大的藝術創作。科幻小說是以小說的形式,探究知識的增長和科技的變革對個人和社會,無論在物質上、制度上、精神上所帶來的影響。我還有一個趣味性的定義,就是「如果……哪麼?」的故事。例如「如果我們可以活到200歲,哪麼?」之類。
科幻追求的是什麼?驚訝讚歎之情(A sense of wonder)。科幻比科學多了故事性。我對科學的熱愛,也喜歡聽故事,接合起來就是科幻。科幻小說與其他小說不同,有知性上的激發。
愛因斯坦說過「人所能擁有的最深最美的情感是神秘感,它是一切科學和藝術的萌動。沒有這種感情,再也不懂得驚訝和讚歎的人,雖生猶死。」

 
科普閱讀書介紹

<<無限春光在太空>>
 明窗出版社 作者 :李偉才  (ISBN: 978-988-8525-87-4)

宇宙無垠,你是否相信地球以外有其他高智慧族類,甚或有另一個「現實」的存在?人類的前途真的在太空?抑或在電腦所建構的「虛擬空間」?
科學家窮畢生精力探索宇宙的奧秘,普羅大眾又可以如何發揮自己對宇宙的萬般想像?
香港頭號科幻發燒友、香港科幻會會長李偉才博士,自少年時代已飽覽克拉克、阿西莫夫、海因萊因等科幻大師的著作,十八歲唸中六時已執筆撰寫英文科幻小說。一九九零年他與友人創辦香港第一本科幻雜誌《科學與科幻叢刊》,並曾多次在大學和科學館開辦「科幻閱讀與欣賞」課程。本書收錄李博士精選的二十二篇傑作,當中包括〈泰拉文明消失之謎〉、〈無限春光在太空〉,及其力作〈大地之歌〉,讓讀者得以進入李博士奇思妙想的世界!
此書與眾不同之處在於李博士細心地在大部分的章節後加上解讀小段,闡明創作緣起或根據,或是解說有關之科幻概念,好讓讀者更全面明白故事之來龍去脈。最後一章導讀旨在使受啟發之讀者有清晰的指引繼續探求宇宙及科學之真理。
趕緊掀開內頁,讓李博士帶您走進一個另類的奇妙宇宙吧!

 


<<泰拉文明消失之謎>>

時間已經無多……
這是你接觸太空的第一步。
宇宙無垠,
人類的生命卻有限。
面對浩翰無邊的宇宙,
人類的創作力可以發揮到什麼程度?
