Changes in primary and secondary science education curriculum and the overall education policy in Hong Kong over the years have directed the way researchers conducted local science education research. Due to the large amount of academic publications related to science education in Hong Kong, research works reviewed in this article are identified from main local, Asia-pacific and international science-education related journals, and also by authors from the websites of all science-education related faculties or departments of local universities and teacher education institutes. This article aims to give an overview of what has been done to support science education at the primary and secondary level in Hong Kong in the past few decades and to provide researchers with a foundation on which future research studies can be built.
