Children and adults alike will find themselves amused and educated at the science museum's new 'Material World' section, located on the fourth floor of the museum's Science Center building (where the IMAX theater is also located).  This permanent addition features about 50 different colorful hands-on exhibits which allow visitors to simultaneously play and learn about chemistry and physics-related areas, from hydrodynamics to parabolic surfaces. (Hint to teachers: This is a great field trip destination).  Some notable examples include 'Chasing the Sun', where one can propel a small solar car by directing light at it; 'Fantastic Space'--a giant soap-bubble machine; and another device that allows users to make a metal ring jump by sound alone.  Approaching the museum from the Kuanchien/Taichung Kang Road side, the Science Hall is the big building on the right of the plaza and also contains gift shops, snack bar and other educational exhibits.  Admission to the hall is free with general museum ticket or NT$10 by itself.
