Fun Learning @ Petrosains Science Festival 2013 [22-27 Oct] #PetrosainsFest

Where does Petroleum comes from and what's it for? Why volcanoes will erupt? How the PETRONAS Twin Towers were built and why can aeroplanes fly? All these won't be possible without knowing the scientific theory behind it. I myself is a graduate from Biotechnology and I am glad I did took science stream courses in my secondary school. I am always amazed with those tiny little things that can do so much amazing things and it is science that can explain most of them. I researched on Beneficial Microorganism for Oil Palms trees and it was fun knowing the way to breed those good micro-organisms that makes oil palm trees grow better and produce more oil.


Understand the origin of Petroleum from Petrosains Science Festival


Therefore, I must share with you guys regarding this upcoming Science Festival 2013 which will be held at PETRONAS Petrosains for the first time. Science is really important even in our daily life and therefore you shouldn't miss out this chance to learn more cool stuffs from Science Festival 2013. If you are parents with kids wondering which course to choose, bring him there for exploration! He might be inspired and figure out what he likes to do next =) Who knows he could be the next Einstein that will make you and family proud?

The Discovery Centre
The science festival will be held at The Discovery Centre of Petrosains this coming 22 – 27 October 2013. Tons of entertaining and educational science events all week long will be noticeable at both Discovery Centre and Suria KLCC.

There will be workshops, forums and talks ongoing from 22 to 27 October 2013. I'm personally interested to learn how to make my own digital music using GarageBand (24 Oct) and make ice-cream without using a freezer (I think I know how they do it but I wanna learn the tricks!). I am also interested in exploring the fascinating, real world of forensics - the science behind Criminal Scene Investigation. on 26 Oct. All these activities are available at Science Festival 2013 and you can check out the Science Festival 2013 calender HERE.

The main objective for Science Festival 2013 is to raise awareness of the importance of STEM education ( Science, Technology, Engineering and mathematics) and is fully supported by MOE & MOSTI. Some of the exhibitors taking part in Science Festival 2013 @ Petrosains includes PETRONAS Motorsports, PETRONAS Carigali, Legoland, SIRIM, Yakult, Kota Buku, SEGi University College, Aquaria KLCC, Multimedia University, Nuclear Malaysia, Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris, Universiti Pertahanan Nasional Malaysia, Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Universiti Malaysia Terengganu and many more.

Since this is a huge event, I am expecting big crowd of students visiting this place and it is better if you register first for Science Festival Workshop. Oh yes, since the Science Festivals is being held at several places (Petrosains Galleria, Centre Court Suria KLCC, Suria KLCC Esplanade), let me share with you on the details:


Petrosains Science Festivals will be held at Petrosians Galleria, Centre Court and Esplanade in Suria KLCC

Few days ago I went to the press conference for Petrosains Science Festival 2013. With the theme 'Bringing Science Alive', the Petrosains Science Festival aims to nurture an informed and scientific citizenry. This is through incorporating three key elements in the festival's approach which are: Discovery, Play, and Innovation. The various activities organized for the visitors during this science festival include interactive exhibitions, workshops, forums, science shows, contests, and exciting stage performances.


Dr. Graham Walker from Canberra demonstrated how a simple chemical reaction can create popping fun within seconds.

During the press conference, Dr. Graham Walker from Canberra did some interesting scientific demonstration like the air ignited ball cannons. You can learn all about energy from Dr. Graham Walker in a 30 minutes performance at Centre Curt, Suria KLCC. Remember to mark your calendar as this event will only take place on 27 October 2013.
