The Mind's Eye
This is the first stop through the front gate. The exhibits plays with illusion and test what your eyes really see. Most of the exhibits remain unchanged compared to a year ago. Nevertheless we had fun goofing around the exhibits. We like the fact that we could touch and explore almost every one of them. The 'magical' illusion intrigues and amuse us at the same time.
We even stumbled upon an interesting exhibit. Apparently a little piece of Singapore was on the moon. We could not vouch for its authenticity, but if it is display in the Science Center, it could be real!
|Singapore was on the moon!|
We took a turn to the right to the Sound hall.
The echo tube greeted us at the entrance and we wasted no time
Tesla Coil Show
Before we proceed, we caught the Tesla Coil Show at the atrium. This is the signature show of the Science center. We watched in awe as 'lightning' was created by the Tesla coil. Daddy was even electrocuted in the process. It was an interesting 10 minutes performance
Our next stop is at Candy Unwrapped. This is a temporary exhibit. We learn how treats like sweets could actually be bad for us ( No way!). This exhibit will close Apr 2013. the good thing about the science center is that the exhibits changes every once in a while. Thus every visit is a refreshing experience.

Next up is the Live animal exhibit. I got reacquainted with my favourite turtle. There are bugs and cockroaches on display as well. So if you are not a fan of those, beware.
We caught the insectmania show (only on Sunday and Public holidays @ 2pm). We were braver than our parents as we up close and personal with the creepy crawlies.
Earth : Our Untamed Planet, Genome, iSpace, Marine Alcove
It is time for lunch and we had a quick meal at the Coffee hive to fill our little tummies before we continue our exploration.
|Lunch at the inhouse cafe|
Lunch is still a learning experience as kor kor decided to try his hand in loading a cannon.nearby.
|It's time for war!|
Robotics Learning Centre
We explored level 2 after lunch. We past by a non interactive exhibit of past and possible future robotics.
|Invent! It's in you|
Invent! It's in you!
Next exhibit celebrate ideas and the inventive spirit. We had a blast taking some photos and seeing ourselves on the screen.
After a an hour or so, we were itching to get to the main event. We made a quick pit stop at infocomm where we take a peek into the future. In fact, some of the future is already here, such as touch screen surfaces such as tablets and pcs
This exhibit is most likely going to close in December 2012
Scientist for a Day
We headed down to Scientist for a Day and met up with scientist of the century, Mr Albert Einstein.

It did not take us long to warm up to what could be our favourite 'exhibit at the Science center
It may not have the slides and the pools, but we manged to squeeze out every learning experiences as we could from it. We noted that this exhibit would most likely appeal to kids age 2 to 7.
The Science Center is indeed an interesting place to visit. Not only it gave us the opportunity to learn a thing or two, it also allow us to let our hair down. If you want a fun learning experience, this would be the place to visit.
