Event Description:

Join us for our Family Event x Monthly Luncheon Speaker Series featuring Serena Fan, Founder and Executive Director, of the Hong Kong Children's Discovery Museum.

In today’s world of helicopter and snow plowing parenting, learning is often adult-led. Yet research has demonstrated child-initated play leads to more meaningful and impactful learning. Serena will share strategies to maximize child-initiated play and how parents can benefit from the experience too.

The Hong Kong Children’s Discovery Museum (CDM) is a recognized tax-exempt charitable institution in Hong Kong, under Section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance. Opened mid-September 2018 as a venue for families and school groups to explore, create, and express themselves together. It showcases how much can be learned through play and aims to foster a love of learning beyond the classroom. CDM is the first of its kind in Hong Kong and its exhibits uniquely reflect the city’s people and culture.

The museum welcomes all Hong Kong communities to engage with interactive educational exhibits, which are designed for children 10 years old and under. Family members from ages 0 to 100 are encouraged to join in the play.

Families are invited to purchase tickets to visit CDM on May 11th for the 4pm session to experience CDM and put into action the strategies Serena will share from lunch. Serena will be at CDM to welcome HCHK family members. 

Serena Fan is an alum of the Harvard Graduate School of Education and is the Vice President of the Harvard Club of Hong Kong. 

HCHK Board Director Tiffany Lee will be hosting the event.
