Ecogarden at Science Centre Singapore

Ongoing
S$6.00 - S$12.00
FREE

The Ecogarden, short for ecology garden, is a living outdoor laboratory with a diverse variety of plants to observe and many types of animals to find. The plants here receive no special care. No attempt is made to control pests except for occasional pruning, mowing and necessary replanting. Thus there are many habitats where animals can find suitable niches for themselves, providing a suitable setting for ecological studies.

The Ecogarden is divided into many different areas showcasing a variety of plants. From our local king of fruits, the durian, to the common vegetables that you get in the market, take a walk around nature and discover more about the plants that you commonly see.

Defending Science

Ongoing
S$6.00 - S$12.00
FREE

Enter the mysterious world of defence scientists and engineers, and discover how science changes the rules of the game on the battlefield! A collaboration between DSO National Laboratories and Science Centre Singapore, the Defending Science exhibition is a mind-blowing experience filled with multimedia exhibits, interactive games and adrenaline-packed workshops. So get ready to be wowed in four exciting zones of Armour and Protection, Stealth and Surveillance, Flight and Radar!  

 

Stealth and Surveillance

See while being unseen – that is one of the key factors to military success. Learn how stealth and surveillance technologies can help to evade detection, collect intelligence and infiltrate enemy lines in this zone. There is also an interactive Out of Sight exhibit that allows the players to search for targets through the “eyes” of the visual, infra-red and hyperspectral cameras.

   
    

Science of Flight

Conquer the higher powers with defence science! Today’s modern military aircraft are made possible with the study of simple scientific concepts like lift, drag and flutter. Learn more about them and explore the nature of gravity and air, how aircraft wings work and supersonic flight in this fascinating zone.

 

Armour and Protection

Stand tall against all odds and break the unbreakable. As technology becomes more advanced, tanks and other armoured vehicles must constantly evolve to defend against new threats. In this zone, uncover the science behind the threats that tanks face and how armour can defeat them.

   

 

    

Radar

Overcome the limits of sight with radar. Used extensively in military and non-military applications, radars can see far beyond our naked eyes, form images that look almost like photographs and measure the speed of a moving object. Originally developed as a top-secret military technology, this zone reveals how radar systems work, the ways to reduce detection and how they are being used in space!

Human Body Experience (HBX)

Ongoing
S$15.00 - S$20.00
FREE

If you’ve always wanted to explore the fascinating workings of the human body, why not dive right in? This journey takes you inside the human anatomy, through organs, muscles and systems, and lets you interact and play with the amazing functions of the body.

This feast of light, sound and pneumatics makes this exhibition a perfect way for adults and children to be educated, excited and enlightened about the human body. You’ll step into the mouth of a 6m tall human face into a journey through the fascinating human anatomy. See, hear and feel what it’s like to be an explorer inside five main systems of your body: the circulatory, digestive, immune, nervous and respiratory systems.

Quirky

Ongoing
S$6.00 - S$12.00
FREE

Have you ever thought "Great idea. I should have thought of that!"  when you see a gadget that would make life that little bit easier?

Well now’s your chance to see lots of them.  QUIRKY is a new display of anything odd that looks as if it might just come in handy or even solve a problem.  They take a look at strange ideas from one of Leonardo Da Vinci’s flying machines to how to hold pages of a book open with one hand.

From weird musical instruments to foam lighter than a feather that can carry a brick, these fascinating inventions will make you think.

Time

10am - 6pm, Daily. (Last admission at 5.15pm)

Sound Exhibition

Ongoing
S$6.00 - S$12.00
FREE

Sound is all around us. It cannot be seen but can be felt  through vibrations. It warns us of danger, helps us navigate, entertains us and most importantly allows us to communicate by expressing ourselves audibly. 

Discover the surprisingly multifaceted phenomenon of sound as you engage with our range of fun and educationally stimulating exhibits.

Explore the science of sound by learning more about sound waves and how they are transmitted. Test your hearing range, learn how sound travels through your ears, be fooled by auditory illusions, and discover how music enriches our lives.

Have fun experimenting with our musical exhibits and bring out the musician in you as you immerse yourself in the world of sound. Come explore the wonders of sound in this interactive exhibition.

Time

10am - 6pm, Daily. (Last admission at 5.15pm)

Uniquely You Exhibition

Ongoing
S$6.00 - S$12.00
FREE

Have you ever thought about what makes you special? Why you look different, think differently or behave differently from others? Scientists have been working hard to find out too! As it turns out, the answer might just lie in a complex relationship between your genes, environment and the kind of lifestyle you lead.

The Uniquely You exhibition explores the complex combination and interaction of genetic inheritance, environment and lifestyle influences through three sections.

Time

10am - 6pm, Daily. (Last admission at 5.15pm)

FREE

Scientist for a Day is a highly interactive, thinking exhibition with a novel, open-to-all Discover-It-Yourself Laboratory or DIY Lab, staffed by our resident science educator-facilitator(s) and, when available, guest scientists.

Learn the Scientific Method by interacting with the exhibits – sometimes, simply observing what happens – then noticing and defining problems based on what has been observed, and raising various explanations or hypotheses.

At the open-concept DIY Lab,  take part in various experiments using "inquiry-based" guidance by the facilitators.

Time

10am - 6pm, Daily. (Last admission at 5.15pm)

Bioethics

Ongoing
S$6.00 - S$12.00
FREE

Society today faces numerous decisions regarding the progress of new technologies in life sciences. These new technologies and treatments have raised social, legal and ethical issues in our lives. For example, should we be informed if our food has been genetically modified? Or how would you feel if you knew that you were genetically designed by your parents?

With a small Introduction Area and a number of interactive exhibits within the 'Genome' and 'Living with Viruses' exhibitions, the Bioethics exhibition highlights the nature of a range of bioethical issues.

Visitors are encouraged to explore the issues related to organ transplantation, genetic testing, stem cell therapy and cloning as they interact with the exhibits.
