Singapore Science Festival 2020 Has Fun Experiments & Escape Room Games To Occupy You At Home Till 8 Aug

Singapore Science Festival 2020

If there’s anything popular shows like The Big Bang Theory have shown us, it’s that there’s more to science than wordy journals and long lectures. So if you’re looking for a way to keep your kids entertained while learning at home, the annual Singapore Science Festival 2020 will be right up your alley. 

Organised by Science Centre Singapore and the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), the festival is taking place entirely online so you can partake in an array of activities from the comfort of your home. From 25th July – 8th August 2020, expect a series of games, shows and live events to tide through your upcoming weekends.

Virtual record-breaking experiment

Science is all about pushing limits, and the festival is doing exactly that with a virtual record-breaking activity that will gather the most people to do a science experiment together online.

You’ll get to be a part of this epic event by recreating the mystical Magic Milk Experiment with some milk, dishwashing liquid and food colouring or ink – all of which can be found at home.
