Energy is all around us. While we might often find it difficult to visualise energy, humankind has learnt to harness energy for work. From natural cycles to modern applications, explore the sources, transformation and uses of energy at our latest exhibition called Energy Story!

Jointly presented by SCS, the Energy Market Authority and SP Group, the exhibition captures the story of how humankind has progressed off the back of energy discovery, and must now work towards a cleaner, more sustainable future. Spread across six zones of multimedia displays and interactives, guests will also get to learn about Singapore’s own energy sector, raising awareness of our four energy switches and how we are working towards a greener energy mix. The exhibition also addresses our responsibility as energy consumers, presenting a vision of a clean and energy-efficient future.

Highlights:

a. Using a special projection effect known as pepper’s ghost, watch an animated feature about the energy cycles in nature.
b. Try your hand at the Galilean Cannon to discover how momentum is conserved and see how high you can propel the yellow ball.
c. Work with a partner to direct the lamp at our exhibition onto the solar-powered gliders to make them fly!
d. How will we power cities of the future? Challenge yourself as a single player or compete with friends in a multiplayer mode to see who can emerge as the better planner by selecting the right mix of energy sources in this game.
