Science Centre, Omni Theatre and KidsSTOP review

Zhuang Jia Wen

Updated on:

This family-friendly edutainment complex offers interactive exhibits, live demonstrations, an Omni-Theatre, and KidsSTOP play zone perfect for sparking children’s interest in science. We had an absolute blast exploring this scientific wonderland together as a family.

Engaging, Educational Exhibits

The Science Centre’s sprawling exhibit halls contain over 1,000 displays spanning science and technology. With colorful, hands-on exhibits, my kids could actively learn principles of physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, and more by doing, not just reading.

Making giant smoke ring vortices, experimenting with magnets, and exploring properties of light through prisms and mirrors engaged their curiosity in an unforgettable way.

Exciting topics like aviation, space, and robotics technology appealed to their sense of wonder. As a teacher, I appreciated how exhibits taught core concepts through interactivity.

Entertaining Science Demonstrations

Beyond static displays, live show segments like the Dry Ice Capades and Science of Toys shows had us enthralled. Watching staff transform liquid nitrogen into ice cream instantly and send hovercrafts gliding over the stage was pure edutainment.

The Science Centre really excels at finding the “wow” factor in science. The kids still re-enact experiments like using everyday objects to manipulate sound waves and create giant bubbles.

Immersive Films at the Omni-Theatre

After exploring the indoor exhibits, we headed to the Omni-Theatre for an unforgettable IMAX film experience. The domed projection and surround sound made it feel like we were really scaling Mount Everest or diving the Mariana Trench.

From educational nature films to dazzling space documentaries, the Omni-Theatre’s ultra-engaging films made for the perfect end to our science experience. Sitting in special rotating seats heightened the immersion!

Nonstop Play at KidsSTOP

Finally, we let the kids burn off energy at KidsSTOP. This massive indoor playground spanning play structures, slides, ball pits and more was heaven for them. As they played, we could browse science-themed books and merchandise.

After hours of education, it was nice letting the kids just be kids before heading home. KidsSTOP was the ideal outlet for their enthusiasm after a day exploring science.

Overall, Singapore Science Centre offered unbeatable interactive learning experiences that made science come alive. We created family memories that will last a lifetime at this stellar attraction.
