What if we told you that visiting Science Centre Singapore is good for your brain? Knowledge may be the greatest benefit of all when visiting the science centre, but it also has hidden benefits for your brain that you might not realize.
Growing up, we understood the importance of learning science as part of our academic curriculum. Now, learning science may be just what you need to keep your brain stimulated and healthy. According to the Department of Continuing Education in Oxford University, a stimulated brain can form new synaptic connections, generate neurons, and create neural pathways between brain cells.
By doing so, you can also reap other benefits such as lowering the risk of dementia. Stimulating your brain does not mean you have to take up a new skill, it could simply be something you can do daily. This could be a thought-provoking conversation with a friend or visiting the science centre for some hands-on learning.
In fact, why not do both by bringing along a friend with you! Did you know that visiting Science Centres and museums with your friends and family can help foster stronger bonds?
According to a review done by the European Network of Science Centres and Museums, visiting Science Centres with others can strengthen the bond within the group. At the same time, you will leave the Science Centre with strong episodic memories of what you learn with your friends in mind after engaging with interactive exhibits!
Great Fun Awaits You!
Competition is necessary to strengthen brain performance and intellectual capabilities. Hence, mixing in some friendly competition during a fun Science Centre visit with your friends can improve your overall brain power.

Did you know video games like the ones found in TimeZone can help you improve eye-hand coordination and decision function?
