When 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…
Anyway, off to another trip – the China Science & Technology Museum!
I LOVE science museums. For me, it’s always fun to know how certain things work, even if I’m not exactly a science geek.
The place is HUGE, and if you’d like to explore it in a more organized manner, you DEFINITELY need the map. However, wandering around and going by instinct as we did is also fine.
LOVED this next section where the inventions of China and what they used in the good ol’ days were displayed.
Berber & I wandered off to this next section, which was an upper floor showcasing the more science-y stuff:
This one was supposed to make you feel like you were a surgeon. Love the simulation idea, but I couldn’t figure it out! 😦
Off we went to a new section, which I should know the name of; but looking back at these photos, they look pretty hodgepodge so I couldn’t actually figure it out. Anyway.
These robots were kinda entertaining, what with Gangnam Style and all aside from the usual robot dances. Now only if the person operating them were half as interesting as they were!
Some of you may have seen this, and I don’t know what it’s called. 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.)
This particular item from the souvenir shop I almost bought, if not for the fact that I actually hate ants and take pleasure in killing them at home. They actually live and feed on that blue stuff – how kooky is that?
Don’t know if today’s children would still be fascinated by small shows like these…
I really enjoyed the visit here, but it’s a tricky one for older people and even children. 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.
