Abstract


To present the essence of sustainable development education of Taiwan in museum exhibits, National Science and Technology Museum (NSTM) has been working to the best of our ability and creativity over the years. As part of government plans of promoting sustainability concept, two dedicated exhibition were curated by NSTM with different approaches. In the Achievement Exhibition of 2004, campus settings such as classrooms, campus stores, and educational gardens were designed in the exhibition hall to introduce concepts and ideas of recycling, soil permeability and water retaining capability. Unlike the precedent 2004 exhibition comprising fragments of knowledge, the "Planting Trees vs. Educating the Young: Taiwan Sustainable Campus Achievements" exhibition of 2009, systematically categorized exhibits into different sections of "Low Carbon Lifestyle and Renewable Energy Commercialization", "Healthful and Efficient Learning Environment", "Sustainable Ecosystems", and "Sustainable Campus Education", providing a more complete and systematic presentation of in a museum setting and corresponding more to the expectation of the academic circle and professionals. A survey of the visitors was also conducted through questionnaire during the 2009 exhibition to study audiences' familiarity with the topics as well as efficacy of the exhibition. Results showed that visitors did benefit from the exhibition in understanding more of the concepts of "Sustainable Campus", while the concept of sustainable energy, to certain extent, also inspired the introduction of NTSM.
