The Tsunami that Shook the World
Also at the Science Centre in February right up to 10 July, come see the reconstruction efforts made to date on one of the saddest days in human history, the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami. The Science Centre is hosting a specially crafted exhibition that unravels the science behind earthquakes and tsunamis – two of the worst natural disasters known to man. Developed in partnership with the Earth Observatory Singapore, it pays tribute to those who lost their lives or were affected by the devastation brought upon by the tsunami.
