EXPLORING SCIENCE CENTRE SINGAPORE

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

    LEARNING is a continuous process and this science center will greatly utilize intellectual resources of children and boost their curiosity into a higher level of understanding things around them.

    The city understands how important is learning!

    I’ve been to this place in April 2007, but looking at those pictures, I can’t seem to remember those places. The name of the place was already Science Center Singapore at that time.

    Good thing there’s mind museum here in the Philippines which is partly influenced by Singapore Science Center.

  • Ricky

    I’ve been to Singapore twice but haven’t visited this place yet, I will bring my nieces here when I bring them to Universal Studios soon =)

  • http://pala-lagaw.blogspot.com/ Francis Balgos

    Sounds like a nice day tour!
    good for kids of any age.. including myself! hahaha! :)
    Your photos though has a lot of noise in it, they look grainy instead of clean.
    But it adds more character.

    Science center is really designed for kids to learn and enjoy at the same time.

  • Mai_Flores

    I visited that specific science center during my first trip to Singapore. I’m really not a fan of such, but this one from SIN made me wandering like a little kid! :)

    • Mai_Flores

      And if I may add.. when I visited this during f1 season, I super wanted to try out the water area outside the center.. it was super fun to watch the little kids playing around. :)

  • http://twitter.com/Franckxethee Franc Ramon

    I am a fan of science and that is one of the reasons I’m gonna enjoy places like Science Center. I was able to visit this place years ago along with Snow City.

      I’m not a science fan but I do enjoy experiments…heheheh! This place is good exposure for kids, though.
