::: Science Center

Like to know more about modern science such as physics, chemistry, astronomy, and electronics? The Science Center illuminates the stunning discoveries of it, and examines such questions as how Taiwan developed its IC business, and how the weather satellite obtains information about the atmospheric conditions. Designed as a rich interpretive environment, this Center is also the site of hands-on, interactive exhibits and extensive educational programming.

  • The Science Center is located across from the Life Science Hall, and next to the IMAX Theater.
  • DaDa's Magic Land reopens to the public in January, 2015 and adds more attraction to the Science Exploring Gallery after a major renovation.
  • The completely renovated Astronomy Gallery reopens to the public in April, 2009.
  • "The World of Semiconductor" renovated from the previous Integrated Circuits Gallery is opened to the public in February, 2011.
  • "Physical World" renovated from the previous Material World Gallery is opened to the public in April, 2017.

Dada's Magic World

Dada's Magic World

In the basement of the Science Center is the DaDa’s Magic World (the original Exploring Science). The World is a new exhibition sponsored by AUO (AU Optronics Corporation). From color illusion and optical rotation to the future world of LCD, visitors of all ages will be transported into another world to experience optoelectronics like never before.

The World is divided into seven sections: Sun, Spectrum, Primary Colors, Dynamics, Eyeball Structure, Imaging Equipment, and Panel Application. All the interactive exhibits are designed to enhance visitors’ interest in optoelectronics, to offer visitors a truly captivating and entertaining experience, and to allow them to question and explore optoelectronics firsthand.

The World of Semiconductor

The World of Semiconductor

If we only had to worry about simple conductors, life would not be very complicated, but on the other hand we wouldn’t be able to make computers, CD players, cell phones, i-pods and a lot of other things which we have found to be useful. We want to move on, that’s why we have to talk about another class of conductors called semiconductors.

“The World of Semiconductor” donated by the TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) Education and Culture Foundation contains interactive semiconducting exhibits which work on the basis principles of semiconductor science and technology including augmented reality, identification of projected images, and free float projection. There is a virtual wafer factory, where the expert demonstrates the details about the production process, from the first steps to the completion of a semiconductor chip

This is a real fun-filled exhibition and a must visit for all the students of electronics at basic and advanced level and all those who are attracted by the marvels of semiconductors.

Legends of the Universe

Astronomy

Explore the legends of the Universe, from the Big Bong to our solar system! This completely renovated Legends of the Universe gallery deepens your understanding of our dynamic universe. It is a way to learn all about space and astronomy, from looking into deep space through binoculars to delivering the aliens a letter. It illuminates the stunning discoveries of modern astrophysics. Visitors will have the opportunity to examine such questions as how big the universe is, how the universe evolved into galaxies, stars, and planets, is Earth the only planet with life, or what is the fate of our Earth.

Divided into eight zones that illuminate the processes that led to the creation of planets, stars, galaxies, and the universe, this gallery is designed as a rich interpretive environment. It is the site of hands-on, interactive exhibits and extensive educational programming for all ages, and is a place full of all-new immersive excursions into the universe!

“Stellar Stage” provides firsthand knowledge of the beautiful and awe-inspiring sights of the night sky. Depending on the zodiac signs, visitors are able to know their exact star sign by inputting their birth date. They can also observe a variety of phenomena, such as Saturn’s rings, cloud belts of Jupiter, the Milky Way, or a close pairing of two planets.

There is much more for visitors to explore in the astronomy gallery!

Physical World

Physical World

Physical World explores major physics themes in an interactive space. The Gallery is designed to inspire three scientific habits of mind: curiosity, close attention and creativity and provides opportunities for experimenting, changing different variables, testing things out and asking questions. It has eight zones: Preface, Fluid Mechanics, Electromagnetism, Kinematics, Mechanics, Wave Mechanics, Optics, and Modern Physics. DELTA is the major sponsor, with additional support from the Delta Electronic Foundation.

All the principles of physics showcased in the Gallery are explained by college professors or high school teachers on DeltaMOOCx.

Children's Discovery Room

Kids' Science Place

The Discovery Room is a hands-on interactive place for families and children ages 3-8 to explore the natural world up close. Children, accompanied by adults, can explore an array of artifacts and scientific challenges. Every exhibit is made relating to kids’ real life, and that makes discovering science fun for kids. It is an ideal area for intergenerational learning.

Blending science education exhibits and activities, the Children's Discovery Room is a learning space for preschool children and students in the lower grades of elementary school. With its lively and eye-catching design, it is a place for parents to spend quality time together and for young children to explore. During the school year, activities complement the educational curricula of preschools, and educational services are provided to groups with advance reservation. The Children's Discovery Room is filled with games and science education teaching aids, with the focus on children's daily life experiences. Using the room's materials children will be able to grasp concrete and abstract ideas, and are encouraged to develop observation skills and independent thinking.

The Children's Discovery Room is for ages 3 to 8. Children must be accompanied by a parent.
