Science in the Mall 20th Series: X-ploring the Amazing World of Energy
In conjunction with Earth Hour and the March School Holidays, Parkway Parade is partnering Science Centre Singapore for Science in the Mall. This year’s theme, X-ploring The World of Energy promises a fun and educational carnival, showcasing the many interesting aspects of science connected to energy. This partnership aims to provide edutainment for families and children to learn about the various ways they can conserve energy.
As part of Parkway Parade’s sustainable efforts, the mall will be conducting a lights out session for one hour on 23 Mar, Sat from 8.30pm to 9.30pm. Non-essential lightings within the mall such as the building’s signages and landscape lightings will be switched off.
Science in the Mall will engage with families and children through interactive science exhibits dedicated to providing an entertaining learning platform. Exhibit highlights include a giant pendulum swing, a merry-go-round and hand crank dynamos each connected to a different light source – LED light strips, compact fluorescent bulbs and incandescent bulbs. Participants will learn how much energy is required to power up different types of light sources!
In addition, shoppers will get a chance to create various science-themed toys through the use of simple objects and recycled materials at three featured workshops. The themes of these workshops will include Paper Catapult, Magnetic Pendulum and Shaking Gorilla.
