    Inventions were made to help solve problems and to improve our lives since the beginning of time. From paper invented by Cai Lun, incandescent electric light bulb by Thomas Edison to cell phone by Martin Cooper, all of these inventions have made our daily lives more comfortable and easier. Thanks to their creativity and relentless effort to improve existing products, inventors have made great contributions to the civilization of mankind. But do you know the scientific principles and the concepts behind every new invention? Now, you are invited to join the “Invention Explorers” and follow Captain Novo, Pod and Dot to the time tunnel for a journey of exploration in the inventions between East and West in history.

    “Invention Exhibition” How Inventions are Made? is organized by Macao Science Center, and co-organized by Macao Innovation & Invention Association. The Exhibition consists of 2 parts, “Innovative Invention Thinking” and “Daily Commodity Invention”. Apart from introducing the “40 Principles from Inventors”, there are a number of daily commodities made exhibits for the public to get to know more about the innovative concepts, and scientific principles behind these inventions. By breaking through the maze and operating the interactive exhibits and models, visitors will be inspired by the interesting inventions that we use in everyday lives.

    Dinosaurs were vertebrates and are classified as Dinosauria, a subgroup of the Ornithodira. They appeared on earth some 230 million years ago and dominated the planet for over 160 million years. There is still wide debate about the true reason for the extinction of the dinosaurs. The general public still has a lot to learn about dinosaur types, their habits, the ecological environment in which they lived, as well as the various roles played by different kinds of dinosaurs throughout the course of the evolution of life. 

     "Living Dinosaurs" is the first special exhibition themed around dinosaurs presented by the Macao Science Center. It is designed and produced by Imagine Exhibitions and Aurea Exhibitions. The exhibit's science advisors include American paleontologist Dr. Gregory M. Erickson, Argentinian paleontologists Dr. Sebastian Apesteguia, and Dr. Adrian Giacchino, chairman of the non-profit organization the Azara Foundation, that strives to promote research into Argentinian natural and cultural heritage.

    Printing is one of the four great inventions of Ancient China. The emergence of this technology made a major contribution to global culture, the dissemination of knowledge and the advance of human civilization.


    Nowadays, we see printing technology integrating the scientific achievements of several fields, such as physics, chemistry, optics, computer science, and electro-mechanics, and the constant innovation in the materials, colours, and special treatments of printing products, in order to satisfy market demands.


    This exhibition “Impressions Printing” presents a wealth of content, includes more than 60 pieces from the National Science and Technology Museum in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, of which there are several gems from printing art and models of printing equipment. The exhibition also reveals all kinds of special printing craftsmanship, such as lithography, silk-screen printing, gold stamping, UV, embossing, watermarking, etc., the scientific principles behind printing, and the most recent printing technologies.


    Through the first collaboration between our Center, the Government Printing Bureau of Macao SAR, representatives from the Macao printing industry and historians, the story of the development of Macao printing work over more than 400 years, in the confluence of Chinese and Western cultures, will be told through the pieces shown in a second phase of the exhibition, in a section specially dedicated to this theme.
