孩童的好奇心是人生瑰宝之一。为了鼓励和培养孩童的好奇心, 中文学校将于三月十日开始主办儿童探奇系列科学知识讲座. 内容包括自然科学与人文科学的诸多方面。

正如其他所有中文学校活动,我们需要家长的大力支持与帮助。我们需要更多家长来为孩子们讲授各种知识。主题可包括自然科学与人文科学的各个方面。 请有兴趣的家长与Sarah Zhang<sarah.zhang68@gmail.com> or Linda Wu <wu_lihua@yahoo.com> 联系。 谢谢支持!

Children learn by asking questions. To foster their curiosity and enthusiasm, HXGNY will host a series of science seminars for children.

As with all activities in our school, we need support from parents. We need more parents to come here to talk about science and any other interesting subjects with our children. If you are interested, please contact Sarah Zhang < sarah.zhang68@gmail.com> or Linda Wu <wu_lihua@yahoo.com>. Thank you for your support!

Our first education seminar will be presented by Wai Tang regarding the universe:
What is the origin of our universe?  Is the Big Bang the answer?  What is inflation? Is our universe still expanding?  Will it stop expanding and collapse back to a point?  What is dark matter?  How come we think dark matter exists, even though we have not detected it yet? And how about dark energy?  Is it really there? These are some of the interesting questions we would like to explore in our first Universe Seminar specifically designed for our youngsters. 

Please click here for the seminar flyer and details for the series.

Lunch: School will order pizza lunch for the parents to purchase.
Registration: Please email hxgnychildren@gmail.com to register. Please state how many slices of pizza you will order.
