A personalised journey

Guests entering the pavilion will be given a 'seed'. This seed will act as a device to communicate to all of the experiences in the pavilion. 

The science of flight

Holographic installations of futuristic aircrafts will be organised. The animations, Emirates explained, will show the properties of lift, thrust, gravity and drag.

Cleaner skies

The Cleaner Skies installation will be an experience highlighting the mission of sustainability in connection to the aviation industry. The experience will offer visitors to take a quiz on green technology and developments against climate change.

Future lab

The future lab will demonstrate a range of new technologies. These will include robotic arms, 4D printing, biometric technology and self-healing materials.
