Petrosains Board 2021

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.
