"It's so great!" This is a sincere comment that senior high school student Wang Yuan gave to so many novel scientific products in the China Museum of Science and Technology. 1300 students and 130 teachers from 31 provinces and the Xinjiang Production and Construction Group have recently visited the China Museum of Science and Technology in the Olympic Park. This event is one of the important activities in Beijing Scientific Camp, a branch of the national scientific camp for adolescents throughout China, which is sponsored by the China Association for Science and Technology and the Ministry for Education, and participated by 41 colleges throughout China.

China Science and Technology Museum is the only state-level comprehensive science and technology museum in China. There are five permanent exhibitions, "Glory of China" , "Scientific Paradise", "Exploration & discovery", "Sci-tech and Life" and "Challenges and Future".

The exhibits ignite Nanjing student Zhang Xu's curiosity. "What impressed me the most in the exhibition is that real science all comes from practice," he said. More students in the camp were attracted by the ShenzhouⅠre-entry capsule. Fan Xiatian in the students' scientific camp said," Watching these exhibits, especially ShenzhouⅠcapsule, I am more interested in areas related to materials chemistry."
