So there was Petrosains Science Festival in KLCC last week. Did you guys know?
It was a week-long festival, happening from 15th to 21st September 2014, and it was open to everyone.
I got the chance to attend the media launch of this Science Festival at Petrosains KLCC the other day. This festival was launched by Yang Berhormat Datuk Mary Yap Kain Ching, Deputy Minister of Education 1.
Tengku Nasariah Tengku Syed Ibrahim, Petrosains Chief Executive Officer and Yang Berhormat Datuk Mary Yap Kain Ching, Deputy Minister of Education 1 with the key partners of Petrosains Science Festival 2014.
This year’s Science Festival theme is ‘Music, Arts and Science’ with hope to attract and inspire the public to understand science with a broader appreciation that includes science and arts. Visitors can expect various fun and educational activities for children, youth and parents alike, such as hands-on science workshops, immersive talks and forums, entertaining music and performances, and colorful displays of artworks.
I think this is a great way to encourage people especially children and youth to appreciate science because science is all around us and this festival could give them a holistic and enriching experience.
Some of the fun activities at the festival include baking (cheesy cheesecake, cupcake art, yummy cookies), pop-up art cards, under the microscope, world of robot martial art (LEGO Mindstorms), shadow puppet creation and many many more.
Sigh, too bad we couldn’t join the festival. My girls would have enjoyed it. Next year, maybe!
