The Bureau of Science Communication of CAS will also support BJAST in further development of the Beijing Museum of Natural History.
The exhibition focuses on the latest sci-tech innovation and popular scientific issues in CAS. It centered around important breakthroughs and major achievements made by CAS in various fields since the implementation of the “Pioneer Plan”. Representative exhibits in fields of space, sea and earth exploration, life science, ecological conservation, agricultural development, and energy are carefully selected and displayed impressively in novel forms of models and VR experience. CAS’s key progress in building talent pools, think tanks and scientific research institutions during the period are also shown by graphics and texts.
The exhibition illustrates frontier trends and latest updates of sci-tech innovation in China and broadens the scientific horizons of audiences, especially younger ones. It also helps develop a passion for science and create a science-loving environment.
