Luring over 200,000 people each year, the exhibition is now considered
a powerful science feast with around 400 programs from 140 local
participants and seven outsiders such as China, Israel and Japan.
Under the subject title of Technology on faster and safer
railroads harmonized with human being , KRRI opened an exhibition
booth within the pavilion titled Science and technology for
a better decade ahead . Presented out there were state-of-the-art
technologies on high speed rail, light transit rail and standardized
urban transit rail. A senior researcher has been dispatched to the
booth as acting ambassador and to provide visitors with a comprehensive
guide in person.
Visitors made a long queue to try ride the 6-axised tilting train
simulator where they learned how it worked hands-on. They were also
interested in folding paper HSR models along with comic books in
which illustrate the railroad technology making a friendly approach.
In a bid to make one step forward, KRRI is envisioning plans to
develop and carry out more fun-oriented science programs that can
reach out to the public especially to kids.
