The latest exhibition aims to inspire young people to pursue careers in aerospace and create the opportunity to discover the immense impact global aerospace innovations have had on the world, from the earliest powered flights to the future of space exploration. Above and Beyond is produced by Evergreen Exhibitions in association with Boeing, in collaboration with NASA and the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, to celebrate both the history and future of flight.

Associate Professor Lim Tit Meng, Chief Executive of Science Centre Singapore shared that “Space travel and exploration has always fascinated and inspired generations the world over. What we have achieved through the centuries is proof that we can indeed transcend limitations through multiple domains of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). The Above and Beyond exhibition has successfully brought each one of these subjects to life and wraps up a full year of exciting programmes at Science Centre Singapore designed to celebrate the very best in STEM education in our 40th year. We want to thank corporate partners such as Boeing and the public for their support.”

Visitors can look forward to this huge and interactive Flight Exhibition comprising of 5000-square-foot featuring five themed galleries – Up, Faster, Higher, Further and Smarter that define flight and space travel and bring to life the marvels of aerospace innovation through flight simulation, augmented reality, touch-tables, design and skill challenges, virtual reality and many more.

Here are some of the key highlights from this exciting aviation and aerospace exhibition as follows:
