Experiment and Discovery

Updated: 2013-02-20 10:12:53

The exhibition area takes your curiosity and imagination on a journey of science discovery. With the clues of important discoveries in science history, this exhibition are featured the basic sequence of scientific development from classical physics, math, modern theory of relativity, quantum theory to the cutting-edge gene and nano theories. It enables visitors to learn basic concepts and methods of science and sparkles their interests through experiencing scientific discoveries.

The place has five sub-areas named after the world renowned scientists

Science Discover Square

Ten classic experiments in the world are shown to outline the chronicle of significant science discovers.

Galileo Laboratory

Clued by the Free Fall theory, the lab introduces his research path on the method of mathematics which initiates the methodology on the base of nature regulation.

Faraday Laboratory

The lab displays how Faraday explores the regulation of Electromagnetic induction by Magnetic Induction Line. And introduce the development with Maxwell's theory Imagination is more important than knowledge in science research.

Newton Laboratory

The lab introduces universal gravitation and the three laws of motion, and displays the principia of how the spheres and earth move and the mechanics system.

Interesting instruments include:


Foucault's Pendulum

How to prove the Earth's rotation? Foucault, French scientist, made it just with a simple pendulum. Since there is only one suspension point on the pendulum, it is impossible to rotate the surface, instead it seems the surface is rotating clockwisely for the visitors who are rotating counterclockwisely together with the Earth.

Solar System Simulator

It demonstrates the motion of the eight major planets and the special celestial phenomena of planets-in-line, such as the eight planets-in-line falls on December 6, 2149, also the 200th anniversaries of China. You can click the view the celestial phenomenon on your birthday.

Electromagnetic Demo Stage

Electricity Boy and Magnet Boy are the twin brothers. Acted as the actors on electromagnetic stage, they play the electromagnetic performance of high-voltage direct current, as well as high voltage power frequency to high frequency high voltage. Brave visitors can experience.

Genetic Theater

On the stage, DNA, a genetic module of life succession, a superexcellent work implicating the melody of life, appears along with the olive branch waved by Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom. Then it becomes a musical instrument playing a melody in the Goddess' hands. And then Poseidon, the God of the Sea, encounters Athena, and was quite curious about the wonderful double-helical structure of DNA, and then he starts a fantastic gene discovery trip with the help of the Goddess.
