We never stop being curious even as we grow up. Science Centre Singapore is on a mission to promote interest, learning and creativity in science and technology through imaginative and enjoyable experiences like their Earth Alive attraction, with exhibits that are organised into spheres to reflect Earth sciences and systems. ?

Each sphere explains how the environment affects the earth to cause natural phenomena like tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and much more! There’s also a Disaster Team workshop and an AR Sandbox (which the little ones will love) that lets you shape a landscape with your hands and watch in real-time as they turn into a mountain terrain or water body!

2. Energy Story

Energy Story is an exhibition that allows you to visualise the concept of energy. ?Learn about the sources and uses of energy in our day-to-day lives through the six interactive zones. At the end of it all, you and your kids will come to understand how electricity is powered in Singapore and how the city is making efforts to move towards clean energy.

Check out the highlights which is the Energy Cycle station where you can see an animated feature called Pepper's Ghost that shows energy cycles in nature. Discover how solar power can be generated from natural sources, such as the sun. Together with a partner, direct the lamp onto the solar-powered gliders and watch them fly!

3. Smart Nation Playscape

We always hear that Singapore is a “Smart Nation”, but what does it really mean? At Smart Nation PlayScape, visitors get to see the future of technology with activity highlights like “Make A Face!” where you can test if you can appear “happier” than your friends and family through biometric technology that will analyse your facial expressions and determine who is the happiest! ?Because this area is gamified, you can register yourself to get a digital PlayScape passport to collect stamps at the various stations.

4. Phobia²: The Science of Fear

Have you ever wondered how the fear of being buried alive came to be (spoiler: it’s a fear that dates back centuries!)? Or what it would be like to be buried alive? ?You can get that very experience at the Buried Alive section of the award-winning Phobia² exhibit, which explores historical and psychological fears along with how they affect our daily lives. It’s an interesting area to explore because you may even learn a thing or two about managing your own fears! ??

5. Butterflies Up-Close

If you love butterflies and learning all about them, Butterflies Up-Close is the exhibit you must visit! ?You’ll embark on an immersive experience through Singapore’s first and only indoor butterfly enclosure. The exciting part about this experience is that as the season passes, new species of butterflies will populate the enclosure, which means that there’s always something new to explore when you visit! ?The butterflies and nature surrounding the area are a sight to behold, so make sure to snap a few pictures to remember your time at this exhibit.

6. Waterworks

Every kid loves water! And even if you’re not a child yourself, you’d still probably enjoy this. ?The Waterworks exhibition may look and feel like a waterpark but it’s filled with fun and exciting features that teach you all about the importance of water. There’s a Clock Tower that measures the wind speed, a windsock to indicate wind direction and a rain gauge to measure the amount of Rainfall. ?And find your way around the Watermaze with jets of water shooting up from the ground - try not to get soaked!

P.S. Admission into Waterworks is included as part of the Science Centre Singapore ticket. Do note that appropriate swimwear is required to enter and sun protection is recommended to avoid sunburn!
