Throughout the week, children, parents and educators can get their hands dirty at the STEAM PlayYard through fun activities like 3D printing your own astronau, building a mini town and launching your very own rocket. Back at the festival are also the Immersive Zone – where participants will be transported into a virtual realm of the animal kingdom - and Sensory Theatre - where thespians can help rookie astronaut Jo employ problem-solving skills to complete her mission. New to the STEAM Festival is the Toddler Zone, where little ones aged two to three years old can explore different seasons, discover about emotions, and participate in STEAM activities related to outer space and cyberspace. They can also join in a sensory trail specially curated by students of Republic Polytechnic or visit the Neighbourhood of Tomorrow art installation, a meaningful community project in collaboration with The Artground involving over 1000 kids.
