exhibits change periodically. Some of the exhibits being featured include:
The exhibit introduces the visitors into the world of biotechnology. While the term biotechnology is often times associated with modern science and technology, Bioteknolohiya! welcomes all with centuries' old biotechnology products that were already part of the early Filipino's life - traditional wine such as tapuy or rice wine, vinegar and patis. Viewers are then led to the modern biotechnologies of plant and mammalian cell culture and recombinant DNA technology involving microorganisms, plants and animals.
E. Coconut for Better Health
With the emerging issues and controversies on coconut oil, the Health Sciences Division of the Academy put up an exhibit that would inform, educate and clear the misconceptions of the public on the matter. The exhibit on Coconut for Better Health was installed at the Center last October 2004.
F. Exhibits on National Scientists Gregorio Velasquez and Carmen Velasquez
New exhibits on the respective works and significant contributions of the husband-and-wife tandem of National Scientists Gregorio and Carmen Velasquez were featured at the National Scientists' Gallery.
