The 42nd Annual Summer Holiday Exhibition for Children:
So many countries, so many salt makings

July 21, – August 29, 2021

Do you know how to make salt?
The 42nd summer holiday exhibition for children features the salt making methods of the world. Children will learn from listening to the salt makers from various times and regions and "asking" questions through a computerized Q&A system.
"Why does the Japanese salt maker spatter sea water on the beach?"
"How can you make salt by simply filling sea water in a large pond in Mexico?"
Through seeking answers to these questions, children will learn the unique ideas and techniques of salt making methods in many nations, ideal for the kids' summer project.
We also display a computer quiz, scientific demonstrations about salt, the summer project guidance corner, and more! Children and parents alike will enjoy and learn something new about the world of salt.
