X3 | Exploration Center
Visitors viewing neural structure in the explore center.
Visitors exploring optical
Visitors are learning how human body maintaining balance during sports activities.
An environment created for curious explorers to understand science more deeply. The exploration center is showcasing more advanced science topics than general public science.
Some fields of scientific knowledge can be complicated for the general public, including the audience interested in science. That is what the NASA Exploration Center stands for. NASA makes science understandable and more accessible through better experience. The exploration center is a complex of interactive museum, immersive theater, and learning place.
NASA Exploration Center reinforces our mission of providing a better experience for understanding science by providing a place that allows visitors to explore beyond usual limitations.
Unlike scientific museums that have regular exhibitions throughout the lifespan of the museum, NASA Exploration Center has a topic of the show about a science topic that is more complex and more storytelling, and the show program rotates and changes topic on-site and virtually.
Similar to: Microcosm (CERN Museum),
Mori Digital Art Museum
NASA realized some topics about science have the potential to inspire the audience by providing an experience, but the yare complex by nature, such as quantum physics and molecular biology. NASA utilizes modern technologies to help the visitor to interact and understand science; also, this knowledge transcends into a virtual form.
C1 | NASA + MoMA Future Gallery
Visitor viewing virtual exhibition in the showroom.
Artificial pets interact with a visitor.
Exhibition about relationship between
AI and human.
A collaboration with MoMa to use unique ways to understand art and the future.
The NASA Future Gallery explores all possible ways for humans to experience art and science by stepping closer to the future. For example, this gallery will ask visitors to wear VR headsets to interact with the art, or offer exhibitions based on touch and smell. This is a place combining technology and art to expands the limits of participating in art.
The NASA X MoMA Future Gallery reinforces our
mission ofproviding a better experience of the future
by providing a place for perceiving the future in
A future gallery supporting the artist to create future inspired artworks and present them in a tangible way. The way NASA is showcasing art can be different from the regular art gallery.Instead, this future gallery enables the visitor to interact with art, and use more than vision as a way to perceive art. NASA works collaboratively with MoMA by integrating technology
Museum of Craft and Design, Wonderspaces
The theme of the exhibition changes from time to time, and vision is not the only way to appreciate the art. NASA enables visitors to interact with art in both physical and virtual ways. Each work of art is an experiment through science and technology, and this co-branding exhibition is an opportunity to inspire visitors more about the future.
P1 | Science Experiment Kits
A bi-monthly package with materials and reading for understanding the different themes of science.
The science experiment kits allow interested audiences to participate and enjoy the process of learning sciences through hands-on materials. The kits are a series of collectible crafts with science integrated into the products, and this engages the audience to assemble the products and explore how they work.
The NASA Science Experiment Kits reinforce our mission of making exploring science accessible and available by providing products for understanding science through experiments anywhere and anytime.
The NASA Science Experiment Kits are not just toys that can be purchased at the souvenir store of a museum. Each package has scientific principles and can be related to everyday living. The kits require some basic craft skills and thinking to complete, and the result is rewarding, and it is collectible. NASA wishes the audience to continue exploring science and be smarter every day.
Similar to: MEL Science, KidzLabs
Unlike some chemistry toys on the market — mix the reagent, wow, then discard it in the trash bin — most NASA Science Experiment Kits are made from environment-friendly components and can remain for a long time. The main propose of the kits is to enable the audience to learn and explore, which is more than a toy.
P2 | VR Game Experience
A space for virtual reality games that have educational content and social interactions.
Because VR is still not in every family living space, NASA offers a physical place for experiencing virtual reality
in a more detailed way. NASA believes having a group using VR tools to explore the future is more fun than in the home. NASA encourages more people to access future experience together and understand science
The NASA VR Game Experience reinforces our mission of making the exploration of science available and understandable by providing a virtual reality environment to the public.
NASA believes the future will be brighter by connecting more people in both physical and virtual activities. VR
has the potential to integrate educational content and social activities. The combination enhances the viewer’s perception and encourages the viewers to interact with others.
Similar to: The Void, House of VR,
Since NASA has experience in exploring space, the same experience can be transformed into another field. A mock or simulated mission for the viewer to explore a new place can have both educational and social value.
X2 | Field Trips & Factory Tours
A service allowing a small group or family to
access a curated tour to satisfy curiosity and
NASA gathers visitors interested in in-depth guided tours of a place such as ecological parks, factories, and some places behind the scenes. The access to this service is based on the internet and the visitor can learn about even more places nation-wide and plan a trip to those locations.
The NASA Field Trips & Factory Tours reinforces our mission of making science understandable through exploring new places by providing access to exploring unique places and becoming inspired.
Field trips and factory tours by science topics can be more in-depth because they are valuable opportunities to witness a place, then learn something new. NASA believes tours can be more educational than entertaining, and they provide a more powerful experience for visitors.
Future of Flight Aviation Center (Boeing Tour)
NASA enables visitors to explore more and more special topics. It is important to preserve and review these experiences after the tour ends because everyone has their own journey of exploring sciences. NASA will keep the journey of these adventurers and enable them to share and revisit memories.
