The Science Centre was born in from the then National Museum of Singapore into a separate institution so that the latter could specialise in its artistic and historical collections. This idea was first mooted in 1969 by the Science Council of Singapore, and was subsequently approved by the government, who was keen to promote scientific education in the rapidly modernising country keen to tap into the technological sector.
The SCS building’s architecture was decided by an architectural design competition organised by the Science Centre Board. Raymond Woo’s entry was selected, and was thus commissioned as the architect for the project. Built at a cost of S$12 million on a 60,000 m² site in Jurong East, it was officially opened on 10 December 1977 by Dr Toh Chin Chye, who was the Minister-in-charge of the Science Centre Board.
On 7 December 2007, the Science Centre rebranded itself to be known as “Science Centre Singapore” (“SCS”). (SOURCE/CREDIT)
This place is indeed full of excitement and educational things for the children! Even my husband enjoyed the whole place. They even have the waterworks swimming pool outside Science Centre so it is indeed a good place to enjoy and for your kids to have so much fun and meet new friends while learning a lot of things. They even have McDonald’s outside so its more fun eating as well! Snow City is just beside Science Centre Singapore so if you guys want some more and feel the snow in the summer heat of Singapore go and make a snow man in Snow city! Will be posting the photos next time so you can see! Apology for the poor lighting of the photos! I used my iPhone for taking all of this since they won’t allow camera inside snow city, I didn’t mind as well bringing one. Thanks guys! God Bless x0x0 =D
