"Science on a Sphere"
It is a large visualization system that uses multimedia projections
to display animated data onto the exterior of a sphere converting
it into an immersive animated globe that shows dynamic, animated images of the
atmosphere, oceans, and land of a planet.
It adds as another education and outreach tool of this museum.
Combined with narration and supporting material it is an innovative
and powerful teaching tool to enhance informal education on earth,
climate change etc. and transform the public perception to effectively
implement conservation measures of the earth.
The duration of each show varies between 15 to 20 minutes
depending on the theme.
Presently 4 shows have been designed on Solar System, Atmospheric
Pollution and climatology, Tsunami, Earth – A Blue Marble.
Dinosaurs were diverse group of animals that first appeared during
the Triassic period, about 231.4 million years ago. They were the
dominant terrestrial vertebrates for 135 million years. Spinosaurus
was a huge animal from North America, measuring 12 metre long and
weighing 4 to 5 tonnes. It had tall rod like bones on its back, which
might have been covered with skin, like a ‘sail’ is a reminiscence of
the giant reptiles that ruled the world during Jurassic period. Visitors
can enjoy the movement and sound of a true size animated Spinosaurus in
a recreated environment of Triassic period and even take pictures with it.

"Engine Hall - How Things Work"
This is an addition to the Engine Hall in VITM. Without machines
our life will be reduced to a rigorous physical struggle.
Machines help us to reduce effort, enhance the delivery time,
and produce repeatedly the same product with no variation and
many more advantages. We use them without realizing its presence
around us. This gallery is an attempt to explain the fundamentals
and working of some of these machines through interactive exhibits.
Exhibits on Pulley system, Gears, different ways of transferring motion,
reducing effort by levers, inclined plane, screw etc. introduces the visitors
to the story of simple machines. Another section deals with the application of
these simple machines in our daily life. Ever wondered! How a Ball Point pen works,
the zipper that we use in almost all our clothes and covers has wonderful principles
behind their operation ; this section unravels the science and technology behind such
simple but essential gadgets. After the exposure to these exhibits, visitors can
delve deep into the working of other machines that they see around.
