At each of the exhibit, there will be an informative and detailed write up of the animals/insects where visitors will get to learn more about it. Visitors will also get to play with the mechanics and have a deeper understanding how the body parts work.
At the Tinkering Space, visitors get down to the do-it-yourself spirit by working on self-assembled electronics, a variety of paper-based and other crafts, and robotics.
This is Seed Art where visitors can unleash their creativity and use the different colour seeds to decorate their very own art piece.
Both Gor Gor and Di Di were working on their animal foam with LED lights where they get to colour their chosen animals/insects. After colouring, they get to put in the lights. At the Tinkering Space, the booth is manned by friendly and helpful staff who will explain to you how the lights circuit works and provide guidance when you are working on your art piece.
Visitors will have the chance to tinker with easily available household materials to show off their creativity by making DIY luminescent rhinos, microscopes, LED charm bracelets among others.
This is the Seed Carving exhibit where it will provide visitors with a detailed journey, from the stages of carving to the types of seeds used, as well as, the stories and anecdotes behind the carvings on display.
The science of seed carving has been in practice in China for many centuries turning useless seeds into valuable works of art of all shapes and sizes. Visitors will be amazed with a variety of beautiful and precious seeds craving collections.
