Where: Hall B
When: From 4 Dec 2020 onwards, 10am to1pm & 2pm to 5pm (Permanent)
Ticket Pricing: Complimentary with every Science Centre Singapore admission
Recommended for: All ages

The newly-launched Earth Alive exhibition will showcase the magnificent planet Earth in life-size interactive displays, for larger than life lessons about the world we live in.

Organised in spheres that reflect Earth sciences and systems - the Geosphere, Hydrosphere, and Atmosphere - the exhibition invites guests to experience Earth’s wonders from the inside out. Learn how Earth changes can manifest in the environment, causing phenomena such as earthquakes, tsunamis, mountain-building and rock strata, and volcanic eruptions. Some of these changes can devastate at-risk communities overnight while others modify our environment over millions of years. Discover as well the impact that human beings have on our planet, such as with climate change, in the aptly titled Human Sphere.

Exhibition Highlights:

  • GAIA

Be mesmerised by this 5-metre inflatable globe installation that will reflect high-definition imagery of the Earth’s surface from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

  • Giant Slinky

Send dramatic P and S waves of an earthquake down a giant slinky!

  • Augmented Reality (AR) Sandbox
