Delve into the natural world at a new, three-month long exhibition at the Science Centre Singapore.
Exploring Nature’s Design opens to the public from 24 July and comprises three separate exhibits, Robot Zoo,Tinkering Space and Seed Carving, each focusing on different elements of natural science.
Robot Zoo uses robotics to explore the ingenuity of nature as a master engineer. Eight giant mechanical animals simulate their real-life counterparts with pistons for muscles, pipes for intestines and computers for brains. These models, including a chameleon, rhinoceros, grasshopper and giraffe, demonstrate how animals function in the natural environment.
Tinkering Space gives visitors a chance to use household material to make luminescent rhinos, microscopes and LED charm bracelets.
Seed Carving explore the art which has been practised in China for centuries, transforming seeds into works of art. It explores the stages of carving and the stories behind the carvings on display.
Admission rates are $13 for adults and $9 for children, inclusive of admission to the Science Centre Singapore. Single venue admission to Exploring Nature’s Design is $8 for adults and $6 for children.
