Description of the project

The exhibition features six zones of multimedia displays and interactives where visitors can learn about the sources, transformation and uses of energy, from natural cycles to modern applications.

There are also exhibits featuring Singapore's own energy sector, raising awareness of our four energy switches and how we are working towards a greener energy mix. The exhibition also addresses our responsibility as energy consumers, presenting a vision of a clean and energy-efficient future.

Author biography

Science Centre Singapore was opened on 10 December 1977 by Dr Toh Chin Chye, then the Minister of Science and Technology.

Today, the Science Centre Singapore, together with Omni-Theatre and Snow City, receives more than 1 million visitors annually.

While formal educational institutions make sure we are raising a nation of “science literate people”, Science Centre Singapore takes this to the next level.

We make science accessible and engaging, creating an environment where Singaporeans are empowered to advance their own learning and, hopefully, are inspired to do something incredible with their futures.
