6 Reasons to visit Science Centre Singapore this June Holidays

Every year during the school vacation, Science Centre Singapore will be bustling with activities and programmes. Here are some exhibitions and activities you might consider visiting or attending during the upcoming June holidays!

An Exhibition Exploring Nature’s Design, 24 May – 24 August 2014

DSCN2413 smallOur mid-year temporary exhibition offers a treat to explore nature’s design from 3 different perspectives, Robot Zoo, Seed and Tinkering.

Examine the complex mechanics of the animal robots to understand the body system of real animals, such as the colour-changing chameleon or the giant squid with 18-foot tentacles. The next section would be the Seed exhibition which showcased the age-old craftsmanship of seed carving in China, turning fruit stones into exquisite art pieces in the most amazing way. The last section would be the Tinkering Space that allows visitors to apply what they have seen in the first two section to design some creations of their own, through DIY electronics, papercraft, robotics and other crafts.

Sounds interesting? The exhibition will only be here for 3 short months, so do drop by for a visit before it closes! Check out the details and admission rates here.

How do we learn best? Most probably, it was when we were having fun and when it involves the use of our hands. Leading up to the Singapore Mini Maker Faire in July, there will be a family workshop on 7 June to provide a sneak preview of the kind of hands-on activities you will see at the actual Faire. Families can bond together through programme such as building Kaleidoscopes, electronic circuits and clay art! More details can be found here.
