November/December 2014 School Holiday fun time at the Science Centre Singapore

DinoBoy will be entering P3 soon and the new school term means he will finally get to study the Science subject, something that he has great interest in since he started primary school.  For the past 2 years, the school and the student care centre has arranged a few excursions to our Science Centre Singapore, after he comes back from that place he has so many things to tell me.  He will share with me the activities he did, the exhibits he saw and the things he learn that day.  To him, it has always been a great and fun trips to the Science Centre Singapore.

Thus I decided to take a look at what Science Centre Singapore has to offer to our children all year round at their permanent exhibits and also their school holiday programs.  I was surprise that they have so many activities that are interesting, informative and educational.  No wonder DinoBoy is so happy every time he goes to the Science Centre Singapore with the school.
