If you live in Singapore then the kids are off from school and you may wonder what you can occupy their time with. A super unique and educational option is to spend the day at The Science Center Singapore. There is a whole spectrum of activities for all ages to engage in. I brought my 3 kids, aged 7, 4, and 2 years old to enjoy the activities.
Our first stop was Snow City and it was opportune, as we needed a break from the sweltering Singapore heat. Kieran, Kalon, and I had our thrills tubing down the man-made mountain while Lila made snowballs in the play area and slid down the slides.
Snow City has welcomed the “Chipsley Family” to join its current stable of Arctic Avengers to help visitors learn more about combatting climate change. The Chipsley Family is comprised of Singapore-designed seal characters by Benny Tay, which is showcased within the indoor snow center. I love that there is an educational angle along with the fun. Don’t forget to wear pants if you go to Snow City (they provide warm jackets, boots, and gloves).
After relishing our “snow day”, the next item on our itinerary was to visit the Dino Robot Factory, which is an interactive exhibition that promotes interest in engineering and robotics through the process of creating a robotic dinosaur. My 4 year old is dino-obsessed so he was definitely in dino-heaven during this activity.
and my 7-year-old learnt fundamental robotics concepts in an enjoyable and participating manner. Be sure you catch it as it ends on August 27.
Next up, we went into the Butterflies Up-Close experience, which showed us the transformation of a butterfly from an egg to a winged adult. There are hundreds of live butterflies that allowed for plenty of individual observation and interaction to see how they behave and interrelate with their surroundings.
Our last activity was to relax in the Omni-theatre and watch a robotics documentary in their seamless dome screen. It was quite an experience!
There is so much to do in the Science Center Singapore. They even have a KidsStop that keeps the kids entertained for hours on end. This center brings out the wonder of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through its unique blend of exhibitions, educational programs, and events. This enriching experience is perfect for kids aged 18 months to 8 years.
