Meet the Changemakers of Science at this year’s Singapore Science Festival.

The 2015 edition of this annual event is back from 10 July till 2 August with events that showcase the importance of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). It is jointly organised by the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and Science Centre Singapore.

X-periment!

The Festival kicks off with X-periment!, a Science carnival taking place this weekend at VivoCity. Changemakers from the local science community will be showcasing projects that demonstrate how science and technology is shaping the future.

Also at X-periment! is science educator, Science Bob. He will present a Science show filled with experiments that demonstrate the basic principles of Science. Look out for the Film Canister Rocket, Elephant’s Toothpaste and Liquid Nitrogen Cloud.

Maker Faire

A highlight of each year’s Singapore Science Festival is the Maker Faire. This event brings inventors, creators and tinkers together to celebrate the hands-on spirit. This year’s event has been conferred the status of a full-feature Maker Faire. The public can meet the Makers and there will be activities for them to get into the spirit of the Maker movement.

A book featuring Maker families in Singapore, Busy Hands, Happy Hearts, will also be launched at the Maker Faire.
