School holidays are in full swing, and we are all no doubt thinking about how to best enjoy our time before the next year begins. This is where techtivities come in – activities where you can learn more about the immense possibilities of technology, while having fun at the same time! 

For December’s #TechFact, did you know that 40 years ago, the computer was named the “Man of the Year” by TIME Magazine? This is the first time the editors of the magazine selected a non-human recipient for the award. It speaks of the large impact computers had in the world 40 years ago, and clearly still persisting till today!  (Source)

Untame: Spaces to Places

With a pandemic comes hybrid classes and meetings, but have you ever heard of a hybrid festival? 😲

Untame: Spaces to Places is an annual, immersive, blended festival designed to spotlight the power of STEM. This hybrid festival allows for a unique, multi-dimensional experience including STEM-themed quests, online missions, sensory shows, games, DIY kits, activity trails and after-dark fiesta. Watch as the Science Centre becomes transformed into METANU, an immersive game world where you get to be avatars and complete online-to-offline missions and get back to reality! There are also LOCI kits with DIY STEM activities where you get to code and build a light right that ring that changes colour when a drone is flown across, build and code an electronic, instruction-responsive pet, and others. 

With so many various activities, Untame is the perfect place suitable for anyone in the family!

An exhibition without any installations? 🤔 This is only possible with the help of Augmented Reality (AR)! 

Seeing the Invisible is an AR exhibition, addressing themes about nature, the environment and sustainability. With 12 AR installations, artists are able to go beyond what physical installations are capable of and allow the interplay of the physical and virtual worlds. All you need to do is to come equipped with the Seeing the Invisible app installed on the phone. View an invisible tapestry moving with the wind, discover a hidden gateway and be transported to a parallel universe, and many more! Visit this exhibition at Gardens by the Bay for an outdoor adventure that you and your family will never forget. 🤩
