Bringing awe-inspiring science exhibits to the local communities.
We believe that everyone deserves high quality science-related educational activities and programmes. This is where Petrosains PlaySmart comes in.
Petrosains PlaySmart started small. Over the years, we have evolved structurally and in our offerings.
We now have four Petrosains PlaySmart centres (Johor Bahru, Kuantan, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching), each boasting around 3,500 – 9,000 sq ft in exhibition area size. Having started with a meagre number of programmes, we now implement 26 different types of programmes to cater to a wider spectrum of audience.
Throughout the years, Petrosains PlaySmart established excellent working partnerships which have helped us develop and grow. Notable partners include Perbadanan Perpustakaan Awam Johor (PPAJ), Unit Sains Teknologi dan ICT Negeri Johor (USICT), Perbadanan Perpustakaan Awam Pahang, Perpustakaan Negeri Sabah, Dewan Suarah Negeri Kuching, Ministry of Education, and the various State Education Departments who share the same commitments towards the community as we do.
In the long run, we hope to bridge the gap between science and the community. Petrosains PlaySmart hopes that science does not only exist in schools, libraries, laboratories and the like, but lives prosperously in our everyday lives.
•Improved literacy in science and technology within the local community
•Strong awareness and appreciation of science as part of everyday life
•Increased involvement of families and communities in promoting science to children and students alike
•Reinforce PETRONAS’ commitment to the local community where it operates
•Application of science programmes in schools and the use of the hands on, minds on, and hearts on approach in everyday life.
