Science Centre Singapore redefines holistic learning with UNTAME - a suite of multi-dimensional STEM initiatives:
Reigniting fascination and fun in science for the new normal titled UNTAME – a suite of blended learning digital-first events set to launch in the second half of 2020, aimed at encouraging the young and young at heart to rediscover the wonders of Science in the new normal. To navigate the year of disruptions, which saw a three-month closure during the height of the pandemic, the institution made active advancements in pushing the boundaries of digital-driven engagement, with new and signature programmes undergoing a digitalisation facelift to connect with fans beyond the walls of the Centre.
The Centre is redefining guest experience through UNTAME to spark curiosity and self-learning both on-ground and online. Bringing this effort to life are three immersive, cross-platform events which will run from October to November, primed to fuel a fun and meaningful discovery of pivotal 21st century Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines and how they interface with Arts and Humanities. The learning journey for UNTAME will commence with the second KidsSTOP™ STEAM Festival for Young Learners, followed by a STEM Conference for educators and industry professionals, and finally, culminate with UNTAME: Beyond Boundaries, an inaugural STEM-based virtual festival for the whole family.
