Asia’s leading sustainable light festival, i Light, is back in Singapore after a two-year hiatus! Immerse yourself and your family in various art installations and programmes. Get excited to view interactive artworks displayed using projection mapping, which helps digital artworks come to life! Did you know that this is also one of the technologies that fall under augmented reality? (Psst! Our students ages 7 to 9 learn all about augmented reality and code their very own games with it. Find out more here.)

Gardens by the Bay and Jumptopia: Wonder Garden
This holiday, Kiztopia is bringing their inflatable playgrounds to Gardens by the Bay. With 8 unique garden-themed play concepts, the indoor garden playscape is the perfect escapade from the heat and humidity! It’s also another great reason to bring the family on an outing to Gardens by the Bay – full of learning opportunities for the little ones to know more about the architectural marvel, amazing technology and futuristic green space in our city.
Our recommendation? Go on the Best of Both Worlds itinerary that covers the best of the indoors and outdoors – with tidbits about the tech that makes this megastructure possible – and ends with the popular (and free!) Garden Rhapsody light-and-sound show.
