We’ve been to Science Centre Singapore so many times, but only last week we managed to visit KidsSTOP, an edutainment centre for children, located inside the Science Centre complex.
There are two sessions per day at KidsSTOP. The first is from 9.30 am to 1.30 pm, and the second is from 2 pm to 6 pm. We arrived there at around 3 o’clock in the afternoon for the second session. Carla and Renan played a bit in front of the entrance while Mamae went to buy the tickets.
There was no queue at the ticket counter…. Soon, we were already inside KidsSTOP. It was really quiet there. There were no more than ten kids and their parents around.
Carla and Renan did a quick tour of the place. It’s not too big, but there are so many things to explore, as you can see in this map.
Carla and Renan decided to go to Human Body first. They checked their height and weight, looked at x-ray images and learned a lot about body systems and the five senses.
After that, they just ran around and explored various exhibits. Carla and Renan enjoyed learning about the seasons and figuring out how to build gears, among other things.
Next, the Dino Pit. Carla and Renan got busy excavating t-rex fossils. They also had fun testing their knowledge about dinosaurs. They actually did really well!
Carla saw an interesting climbing stucture, called The Big Dream Climber, and decided to try it. Looks interesting, isn’t it?
Renan didn’t want to go up The Big Dream Climber, so he went to the Supermarket instead. Renan got a lot of meat, vegetables, sauces and condiments to cook in the Cafe.
After around ten minutes, Carla came back and joined Renan, who was busy cooking a lot of dishes. Carla said there was a giant piano at the top of the Big Dream Climber. She had fun jumping around on the piano to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
Carla and Renan bought more meat and vegetables at the Supermarket and cooked more dishes!
We then went to see the animals in Critters. There were only a few animals there, so we just stayed there for a few minutes and went to Kiddie Theatre next door.
Kiddie Theatre was the highlight of the day, for sure! Carla and Renan had a blast there.
Here she is, Carla the weather reporter, braving the cold and rain, to report about an approaching typhoon.
Carla then channeled her inner rock star while Renan was busy filming and editing her video clips. Carla sang a lot of songs and Renan made a lot of video clips before he decided to join Carla and sing a few songs.
Carla also made a stop motion video. You can send the finished video to your email address. Unfortunately, something went wrong and I didn’t manage to send Carla’s video.
We had so much fun, we stayed in Kiddie Theatre until closing time. We forgot that there were still a few more rooms to explore (Math, Tinkering, The Innovation Lab). Oh well. A good reason to come back to KidsSTOP soon!
