The March school holidays are here again! For most of us, this means planning some activities to entertain the kids and to make sure that quality time is spent as a family.

If you’ve exhausted almost all your options of where to bring your family to (after all, how many times can you visit the Resorts World Sentosa and Gardens by the Bay?), we have one really great suggestion for you: The Singapore Discovery Centre (SDC), and there’s a plethora of activities you can explore here.

As a non-profit organization, the SDC’s mission is to share the Singapore Story and inspire a desire to contribute to Singapore’s future by providing a mind-and-heart-engaging, multi-sensory learning experience which spans a selection of integrated themes. According to its Executive Director, Joseph Tan, the SDC is “constantly looking at ways to make the Singapore Story relevant through the fun, exciting and interactive attractions and activities so that the public, especially the youth, are engaged and prepared for the challenges of the future.”

So be sure to plan a trip down to the Singapore Discovery Centre and you will be able to discover all the engaging activities the whole family can enjoy there. Here are some of the highlights of what to expect.
