April-May 2013, Beijing – China Science & Technology Museum

BeijingWhen we’re not touring, we spend our days either holed up in our rooms, or taking a walk. Dad told me to bring my camera while taking walks, for there are a lot to be captured. True indeed…

China Science & Technology MuseumChina Science & Technology MuseumChina Science & Technology MuseumI LOVE science museums. For me, it’s always fun to know how certain things work, even if I’m not exactly a science geek.

However, wandering around and going by instinct as we did is also fine.

Basically it looks like a wall until parts of it fold up to form words or pictures. This one reads “会更好“, which is part of the phrase “明天会更好”. (Tomorrow will be a better day.)

They actually live and feed on that blue stuff – how kooky is that?

Older people of course are not too interested with stuff and exhibits like this, while there are those “experienced” children out there who are all too willing to call out what they already know and follow with a quick “boring!” Oh well, you can’t please everyone.
