Have you visited the “Tang Prize 10th Anniversary Exhibition” on view in Taipei last year? Don’t worry if you happened to have missed it. A 5-minute video documenting the exhibition is now available on the Tang Prize’s YouTube channel ( While the video shows all the highlights of the exhibition, viewers can also see it in person at the National Science and Technology Museum in Kaohsiung, where it runs until November 4, 2024.


Established in December 2012, the Tang Prize celebrated its 10th anniversary by organizing and presenting for public view a special exhibition. This video begins with the press conference and ribbon-cutting ceremony taking place when the exhibition opened on September 1, 2022. It then shows the content of the exhibition in its entirety and in the order of the time it was launched, first in Taipei’s National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, then in Kaohsiung’s National Science and Technology Museum. At different booths in the exhibition, visitors can get an introduction to the Tang Prize; get to know the 33 laureates awarded the prize in the past five award cycles; explore the four award categories by trying their hands on a variety of installations; browse through a collection of gifts from the laureates; have an overview of what the Tang Prize accomplished in its first ten years; and read the messages the laureates wrote to the Tang Prize Foundation. There is also a comment board for visitors to provide their feedback and a “Dr. Tang Reception Hall” specifically designed for those who attend the exhibit in Kaohsiung.    


Arranged around the theme of “The Four Lessons about the Tang Prize” and with the Tang Prize mascot, Dr. Tang, as the docent, the exhibit features display cabinets, interactive devices, audiovisual multimedia, and visual information, through which the remarkable albeit hard-to-understand academic achievements of laureates in the fields of sustainable development, biopharmaceutical science, Sinology, and the rule of law was turned into something easy and fun to learn about. Since its launch in September 2022, the exhibit’s interactive installations have been the visitors’ favorites. Among the games that enjoy the greatest popularity are the one that teaches the public how to make mRNA COVID-19 vaccine and the one that offers a personality test at the Halls of Law, ranking first and second respectively.
