NMNS, January 5, 2018 － There is no greater inspiration for people than hearing a true master of a profession talking and interacting live about their work. The National Museum of Natural Science regularly invites natural science experts from many different backgrounds in the country to share their inspiration, experience, perspectives, and scientific insights. Following the great success of 2016 Fall Series, 2017 Spring Series, and 2017 Fall Series, the Museum cordially invites you to the 2018 Spring Series, which also sponsored by Ministry of Science and Technology, R.O.C.
