This is a new science centre specially designed for kids 18 months to 8 years old.
The programmes aim to introduce science through engaging activities, facilitated by early childhood professionals and educators. Kids could become pilots and learn how a plane works, or surgeons to learn about the different body parts and organs, or even palaeontologists to learn more about dinosaurs. There are four thematic zones with 17 activity areas to explore :
Imagine Zone : Built Environment, Supermarket and Dino Pit
Experience Zone: Stop-motion Area, Critters and Nature Area
Discover Zone: From “why is the sky blue?” to “how does hair grow?”, almost all the little ones’ curious questions can be answered here.
Dream Zone: Include a two-storey climbing structure, which has hanging doors, flying fish, giant gears and various other mind boggling, interactive exhibits
LEGO® Education workshops and other school and visitors programs are also held here
