Hangzhou Low Carbon Science & Technology Museum, China, is a large public-spirited institute on popular science education. As the first global theme museum concerned, it opens a door to universal knowledge, academic exchange, information promotion, and green building shows; as a “second classroom”, it enables a bridge notably for juniors to life, city, and economy.
