190,000 tourists visited Science and Technology Museum
Children were stepping on the pedal engine.
At the Disaster Prevention Hall, many citizens joined the simulation activity to open car doors under water. By pressing the four buttons on the operation platform, the participants could turn on a pressure device behind the car doors, then push the doors at different stages to learn how to save themselves.
At the Transportation Hall, people tried to build arch bridges to observe their stability. Two sets of bridge building blocks were placed on the booth, and Chongqing’s characteristic bridges and relevant knowledge were pasted on the background wall. The visitors could try to build various bridges with the solid-wood building blocks.
Then, they may grab and sway two handles on the device to observe the stability of bridges with different structures.
Children were learning traffic rules through games.
To get the science popularization functions of all exhibits into full use, the Museum also hired “little tutors” to give professional explanations about the various exhibitions in order to popularize the science knowledge in simple language. (Translated by Sun Jiuyang, Fathom Language Limited)
