If you’re someone who has always been interested in science, technology and what makes things tick, but never reveled in a learning event with a fun twist, then the upcoming Petrosains Science Festival is for you.
Organised by Petrosains, the six-day festival is set to be the largest science-related event in the country. Flying the theme ‘Discover, Create, Innovate’, the event intends to foster a more scientifically literate mindset in the nation especially amongst the younger generation. It also aims to create more interest in science-related topics and matters by making science more engaging and accessible. You’ll get to try out virtual reality experiences, listen to informative talks, as well as participate in creative workshops and hands-on activities.
And if at any point you get bewildered by all the science that’s happening around you, there will be performances by popular local bands such as Bunkface and Paperplane Pursuit as well as street illusionists, LED dancers and daring parkour performers. It would be an absolute treat for all your senses.
Petrosains is hoping the event will become a key date on the city’s annual calendar of events and one that not only promotes general learning of science, but also addresses the challenge of fostering a greater scientifically literate society.
