Power and Machines
The industrial revolution instigated a series of stimulation for the development of applications of powers and wide availability of the steam engine which brought mankind to break through the restrictions of the powers of the nature, marking a milestone for the ability of mankind to produce power autonomously with a power generator. Developed up to date, the main directions of development in the science of power and machines are still focused on increasing the volume of power generation and power efficiency; these are also key targets in the development of technologies. In here, audiences are introduced to the profound influence of power and machines to the lives of mankind.
1. Due to the implementation of the new curriculum and limited manpower, funding, and facilities in the schools, both students and teachers are in need of external help.
2. Hands-on experiments are essential in the nature and life science course because experiments bring students in-depth experience.
3. Museums have the facilities, human resources, and teaching aids to help the middle and primary schools in science education.
1. Offer students another mode of learning.
2. Offer high quality field teaching for students and teachers of Grade 1-9 and reinforce the educational functions of the museum.

Air Navigation and Aerospace
Mankind, and the development of air navigation and aerospace technologies is the best testament to the claim, "Men are great for the dreams they have." From the earliest imagination of riding the wind, to the invention of atmospheric flying devices, from the improvement of air passenger carriers to the development of turbo jets and realization of space expedition, weightless flight, and autopilot carriers, the dream of flying has been brought into reality step by step. Maybe, in the near future, cruising in outer space will no longer be a scene only in science fiction movies.
Innovating a better future
It is an intelligent interactive exhibition which held by NSTM and ITRI. It presents about how innovative technologies make life better. Visitors can borrow flat PC as R&D pad and have a 10 minutes training to know how to use it wisely. There are 6 sections in showroom, visitors should crack each selected missions to cumulate points and upgrade higher level gradually. We hope the exhibition can give not only fun but innovative technology to every visitor. To guide them, to teach them, to inspire them. An better future will be built up by every human being.

LOHAS Energy Conservation House
Energy conservation should be a common goal of every person in the nation and promoted through education. A Cool Energy Conservation House has been built in the Taipei Zoo, which is similar to the Lohas Energy Conservation House in the National Science and Technology Museum Kaohsiung. These structures aim to promote energy conservation through green architecture.
In addition to instilling the concept of green architecture in the heart of our little citizens through school education, this exhibition will also provide knowledge of green architecture to the general public and instill the concept of energy conservation in heart of the citizens.
Our everyday life is inseparable from the use of energy. In the age of severe resource shortage, we need to learn ways and build the right attitude to effectively utilize the limited resources on Earth.
In view of this, the Bureau of Energy (Ministry of Economic Affairs) and the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) joined forces with the National Museum of Science & Technology to build the LOHAS Energy Conservation House. It is a structure that integrates architectural design, energy-saving exterior, high-efficiency facilities, and clean energy to achieve minimum energy consumption. It is an energy-saving, environmentally-friendly, and comfortable green structure, certified as a Golden Class Green Architecture. Through a tour to its energy-saving exterior, life energy-saving, and clean energy exhibition, we will bring visitors to see the importance of energy-saving architecture and how this energy-saving concept can be implemented in the regular houses.
