Expressing the significance of BCA’s involvement in KidsSTOP, Mr Lam said, “Through this project, children can experience the fun of building, and imagine how science and technology can help create an exciting, interesting and sustainable built environment for people of all ages. BCA is pleased to be a partner in this.”

Commenting on their sponsorship of the Flight and Space Zone, Mr Yap Ong Heng, Director-General, CAAS, said, “Our wish is that not only will our young be inspired to imagine, experience, discover and dream the wonders of flight, but also develop an interest in aviation and the opportunities it enables.”
