Special Exhibition "Science News! from Asia - Power of Asia, Power of Science"

* This exhibition has ended.

The region encompassing Asia is the largest land area on this planet and thus presents dramatically different climatic zones where a wide variety of organisms can be found. The existence of this rich biodiversity is a primary source of maintaining the overall environmental balance of our earth as well as holding great potential as a life resource. However, the phenomenal development in industries and economies as seen in recent years has created serious environmental problems such as air/water contamination and soil degradation.

Thus solutions employing science and technology to address problems encountered in each region and throughout Asia which are related to the environment, energy use and natural disasters, are urgently required. We will introduce you to the new look of cutting-edge science and technology, viewed through the power of Asia in the field of science and the power of science in the Asian region.

In addition to this, during the event, there will be a special demonstration entitled "Come and see? Asian Talk" to be presented by our interpreter twice a day. We are awaiting your participation!

Demonstration time: 1. 11:30 - 11:40 2. 15:00 - 15:10
Capacity: Approx. 20 people
(There may be changes due to conflict with other scheduled events.)
