Mr. Teo commented, “Since the Science Centre Singapore was opened in December 1977, it has played a pivotal role in transforming the way students and the public discover and learn about the marvels of science and technology. Working closely with its partners, the Science Centre has captured the essence of key scientific developments through unique exhibitions, making science come alive to Singaporeans, young and old, from all walks of life.”
Ever the curious, we wondered ... in this age where it seems that even friendships have been digitised and virtualised, why make the effort to bury items in the ground? Why not just digitally scan and archive the items?
APRIL Asia, Eastman Chemical Co, GlaxoSmith Kline Pharmaceuticals, Haw Par Corporation, Nanyang Polytechnic, Nanyang Technological University, NIPSEA, Pilot Pen and ST Kinetics will also be contributing items of the times, including models of local satellite VELOX-1, the all-terrain tracked vehicle BRONCO, ultra-durable CyGLAZ paints, medicines from both East and West, locally developed indie games, new plastics, erasable pens and more.
Looking for a weekend programme? Why not head over to the Science Capsule exhibition and take a walk in time.
