End August the Environmental Conservation Gallery opened its doors at the Hong Kong Science Museum. The new gallery, executed by Hypsos, specialized in 3D communication, encourages visitors to adopt sustainable lifestyles and use natural resources wisely, tackles global issues and presents them in ways that are accessible to the general public and Hong Kong visitors especially.
The aims at providing quality museum services in promoting public interest in science and technology and develop the Museum as a science centre both locally and internationally. The Jockey Club Environmental Conservation gallery was established to promote the importance of environmental conservation. Its more than 40 interesting interactive exhibits are grouped under 10 themes related to environmental protection, including air, water, land resources, energy and waste. The exhibition also highlights the beauty of Hong Kong's natural ecology, and provides some tips on green living.
Based on a design by Northern Light, the exhibition highlights like a mock up of a polar research station featuring content provided by Hong Kong’s very own arctic scientist Dr. Rebecca Lee and also features sustainable building materials used in the construction, including kirei board made from sorghum plants. Hypsos was responsible for the fabrication and installation of 40 exhibits for the new Environmental Conservation Gallery. Interested in working with Hypsos for your new museum exhibition?

The exhibition promises to be a valuable resource for local school children as the exhibits are the basis for new educational programs, supported by a little penguin, the new gallery's green ambassador, that shares some tips on green living with the small visitors, making them find out that making small changes to their habits can make their lifestyle more sustainable.
