Kids thrilled at Science Park expo

Linda Ratchai
Hundreds of students from Chiang Mai and surrounding school districts got a chance to see scientific exhibits up close at the Science Park expo held at Maejo University.

Now if I crank this fast enough Chiang Mai will never have a black out again.
The 20 plus exhibits, sponsored by the National Science Museum (NSM), the National Metal and Materials Technology Center, Thailand (MTEC), the National Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (BIOTEC) and National Nanotechnology Center (NANOTEC) transformed complicated scientific explanations into easy and fun learning projects children of all ages could enjoy.
There were about 20 Science exhibitions such as the Substance through Plasma Ball, Learning about Nature, also games and activities like the Super Power Rebounding Ball, Learning the Nanotechnology through the “power of ten” activity, the Miraculous Science exhibit and the special “Rocket Show”. A mobile lab even demonstrated how to make chocolate which of course was a crowd pleaser among the young ones.
Somjit Wanma, a 14 year old student from Ban pong Mae Lob School, Lampang said he would like his hometown to have science activities like the Science Park so students will learn more and have fun with at the same time.

This is really cool, an endless supply of light.

Hey, I can see Bangkok!

Every time I try this we have an earthquake.

Let’s do the bunny hop!
