About Gallery Pathways

Gallery Pathways have been designed to enhance students' understanding and application of science concepts taught in the primary, secondary and junior college school science curriculum.

These pathways also complement the exhibits in the exhibitions and are designed to guide students as they learn how to better visualise abstract ideas such as environmental impacts, the science of ageing, appreciation to biodiversity and so much more.

Book in advance

The Gallery Pathway is a self-conducted learning session and teachers are encouraged to book with us via the Online Booking System in advance, at least 2-3 weeks. 

Each Gallery Pathway is accompanied by worksheets to guide the students in their learning process. Worksheets and answer sheets will be provided to the teacher-in-charge during the visit.
