Each installation endeavours to address the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals – allowing visitors to have a deeper understanding of the complex global challenges faced in a rapidly developing world today.
Kids will love checking out exhibitions including:
Ugly Vegetables – Using augmented reality on a smartphone, different kinds of weird yet cute looking vegetables and fruits can be placed in the real world. This exhibit aims to teach people that different looking vegetables and fruits can be eaten and are not to be thrown away. What’s more, you can even snap a photo of yourself next to your veggie!
Animaker Asia – In this interactive exhibit, visitors can build their favourite animals with Duplo bricks, and scan it to see it come to life! This exhibit will also showcase some of the endangered species of Southeast Asia.
Oceanscrub – Newlywed artist duo Jason and Cherlyn have created this fun interactive mobile game that invites everyone to take on the role as an Ambassador for Ocean Protection and guide sea creatures to safety through the polluted waters.
Paperchase – This is an augmented reality experience that invites visitors to go on a treasure hunt to find and use Singapore’s recycling points whilst collecting comic strips to piece together the story of a trash-eating monster. In completing the story, one learns the importance of moving towards a zero-waste world.
