Message From The Chairman, Petrosains Board

Puan Zahariah (Liza) Abdul Rahman

I feel honoured to be heading the Board of Petrosains Sdn. Bhd. at this exciting time – where learning experiences are transforming before our eyes with the rapid rise of technologies.

Petrosains, The Discovery Centre was a visionary establishment by PETRONAS back in 1999. It is the pioneer of providing engaging learning experiences in Malaysia, focusing on the science behind the oil and gas industry, the very industry that powers the nation. Petrosains is an extension of PETRONAS’ commitment to nation-building by driving the creation of a future generation more inclined towards STEM required for the growth and development of the nation.

Since then, it has not stopped renewing its offerings to keep visitors in awe while developing knowledge and spurring interest in the wonders of science. It has grown its reach from offerings in the centre nestled in Suria KLCC to extensive outreach programmes and satellite centres all across the nation, travelling exhibitions penetrating the far reaches of the country and learning programmes extended on digital platforms.

I am glad that through Petrosains, PETRONAS is able to contribute to the educational ecosystem by helping to enrich lives and providing greater social impact to the community for a sustainable future.

As Petrosains moves into the year 2020 and beyond, we are even more excited to embrace the future of learning, continuing our aspirations of giving back to the community in the different areas of informal learning of STEM, especially to the younger generation. Over the years, we have collaborated with the Ministry of Education, local and international universities, and corporate organisations to enrich our offerings. Besides playing and active role in supporting the nation’s education landscape, Petrosains has also received global recognition and is part of a global network of science centres through affiliations with ASPAC(Asia Pacific Network of Science and Technology Centres), ASTC(Association of Science-Technology Centres – Washington D.C.) and ECSITE(European Network of Science Centres and Museums).

Apart from the discovery centre, Petrosains Sdn. Bhd. also manages the visit operations of the iconic PETRONAS Twin Towers. The timeless architectural marvel has opened its doors to the local and international community for decades now and still retains its charm as one of the world’s must-visit places with a touch of truly Malaysian hospitality.

Both institutions served as the windows to great experience, contributing to the educational development and tourism economy of the nation. I look forward to continuing the legacy of such timeless and dynamic institutions.

Together, let’s unfold more wonders for more years to come!

Petrosains Board 2020

We have always been guided by outstanding leaders from PETRONAS with impressive credentials throughout the years. They have inspired us to build a unique and creative platform to help unravel science to make it accessible and credible which has positively impacted the younger generation. Their support and their influence have helped shape Petrosains into what it is today – an important supporting component in the nation’s education landscape and presence in the community as an authority in informal learning, specifically in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). On behalf of all Petrosains staff, we would like to express our sincere and heartfelt gratitude to the Chairman and Board Members of the Petrosains Board for their strong stewardship and their continued commitment towards our efforts to spark and nurture the learning of science among citizens of Malaysia.

Message From The CEO

Fedora Zulkifli

From October 2018, I have been entrusted with the responsibility to lead and steer the business and operations of Petrosains, The Discovery Centre and the visit operations of the PETRONAS Twin Towers. Each day, thousands of people walk through the doors of both attractions, opening up their minds to the wonders and the joys of learning with Petrosains, The Discovery Centre and the be amazed with the icon of Malaysia’s progress and achievements with the PETRONAS Twin Towers.

The experiences that are offered through both institutions are anchored on the brand promise of “Creating Wonder”.

Petrosains is everything a science discovery centre should be – exciting, interactive, contemporary and fun. It is a gateway to inspire the learning of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and ignite the passion for lifelong knowledge attainment in society. With the people, exhibits and programmes that make learning STEM interesting and impactful, Petrosains is an extension of PETRONAS’ commitment to nation-building by helping to produce scientifically literate citizens and critical thinkers in the nation.

I am extremely proud that Petrosains has come a long way, having reached and positively impacted the lives of millions, especially the younger generation across the nation, fulfilled its objectives of giving back to the community and supported our parent company, PETRONAS in the quest to enrich the lives of the people for a sustainable future in the communities where PETRONAS is present.

It gives me great pride to contine this legacy as I truly believe in Petrosains which stems from the moment I came into office and the experience I had with the people, programmes and exhibits of Petrosains that have made me very impressed and in wonder. I hope to impart the same wonderful experiences I have experienced in Petrosains to our visitors and the general public. Petrosains is truly the place to learn and discover, be inspired and excited, and learn how STEM can transform minds and empower people to change and do more.

I am indebted to the millions of visitors who have visited or shared meaningful experiences with us through the myriad of activities, engagements and partnerships held over the years. We would also not be where we are today without the incredible support from our partners who have collaborated with us throughout the years. Through such strategic partnerships, we have been able to extend our reach to more people in the nation and beyond while also supporting our partners in achieving their corporate social responsibility mission in education.

My aspiration for the future is to bring Petrosains to the next level and be a world-class science centre while holding steadfastly to our foundations and remembering why Petrosains was established in the first place. With PETRONAS as the anchor and together with partners from government ministries, departments and agencies, industry partners, academic and the corporations, Petrosains will continue to do our part in providing impactful and meaningful STEM learning experiences to the nation and the community and deliver the promise of many more years of creating wonder.

Our Leadership Team

Working hand-in-hand with our staff and volunteers, the Leadership Team is entrusted to lead Petrosains in carrying out PETRONAS’ corporate social responsibility towards the nation in the pillar of STEM education.

Together, we hope to inspire and instill a passion in the learning of science, spread fun in discovery and introduce the pleasures of lifelong learning to our visitors. Through the years, the Petrosains team has successfully steered a course which has lived up to our promise of “Creating Wonder” and helped nurture scientifically literate citizens who are curious and critical thinkers, competent problem solvers and who whill consequently be the future generation that drives Malaysia forward. Petrosains is proud of this dynamic team and we look forward to a future of continuing our vision in creating wonder and inspiring the nation in the learning of STEM for all.
