What can we do today to ensure delicious rice production over the next 1000 years? This exhibition analyzes the traditional rice cultivation methods that have continued for thousands of years in Asian farming villages from a scientific perspective. It highlights the impressive cyclical system of matter and nutrients that connects with the natural surroundings against the backdrop of the farming techniques that have been passed down through generations of villagers. Visitors are encouraged to use the hints provided by the cyclical system of cultivation to consider how science and technology should be used to ensure we can continue enjoying “delicious rice” in the future.
This exhibition coincides with “Science Centre World Summit 2017” (SCWS2017: November 15 - 17), the first Science Centre World Summit to be held in Asia.
