Petrosains Science Festival 2016 - VR Field Trip to Sarawak


The DISCOVR programme consists of Virtual Reality (VR) videos of different locations in Malaysia with various themes such as nature, adventure, social issues, culture and occupations.

We aim to utilise VR technology and Google cardboard to create a unique, immersive and realistic "field trip" for children, eliminating the need for physical travel.

Educational toolkit will be given to children after viewing the VR videos, to create an interactive learning experience. Join us for the program with your family!

About PETROSAINS Science Festival:

The Petrosains Science Festival is Petrosains’ initiative to provide a unified platform for communities in the fields of science and technology, such as the industry players and science academia, to come together for the common purpose of engaging and inspiring the Malaysian public, especially the younger generation, to the wonders of science and technology. The festival is similar to other such events held in major cities such as Edinburgh, Manchester, New York and Singapore, and is another step taken by Petrosains to play our role as a leading science centre and important supporting component to the country’s educational landscape. Through this Festival, we hope to further contribute to the popularizing of science to the public that combines the engaging and interactive Petrosains approach with the day-to-day relevance that industry and academia partners will bring.
