14. How has Petrosains been assisting on the education front?
Petrosains, has always advocated the discovery of science and technology through creative approaches. Besides our centre located in KLCC, we also have outreach activities nationwide, as we strive to spark the interest in science among Malaysians, from all walks of life.
We are especially proud of our outreach programs as they extend our reach to communities beyond our centre in Kuala Lumpur. We have an increasing range of programs, in which PETRONAS StreetSmart is part of. We have also established collaborative relationships with several institutions and have embarked on several outreach and social activities to serve the rural communities.
In addition, we are also proud of our ongoing efforts to change the mindsets of the critical influencers to our children; we conduct teachers’ workshops where we help teachers get different ideas of how to make science more fun, interesting and relevant for their students.
We have for many years, also provided support towards Secondary Schools’ Road Safety Clubs by assisting them in their activities and producing and printing the Club Book “Buku Kelab Keselamatan Jalan Raya PETRONAS StreetSmart”
