Tinker Fest: FLOW

Tinker Fest is a bi-annual event organized by Science Centre Singapore. We connect children, parents, educators and makers in a week-long celebration of the joy of learning through play, exploration and experimentation.

This theme "Flow" explores the various science concepts related to flow and fluidity; a tribute to the adaptability of humanity in the midst of this global pandemic. 

From gravity to fluid dynamics to melting points, join us in various show-the-science sessions and hands-on activities around Science Centre Singapore.

To ensure a safe and enjoyable visit, please adhere to the Science Centre Singapore's new visiting guidelines and safety precautionary measures.
