PUTRAJAYA – The National Science Centre (PSN) will have a new look by November 2016 for the convenience of visitors, said Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Datuk Dr Eon Ebon.
He said PSN, closed since March 20, was currently undergoing upgrading work costing RM20 million.
“A total of 692,854 people visited PSN and joined the science programmes it offered last year.
“With the reopening of PSN soon, the ministry wants PSN to continue as an attraction icon for science, technology and innovation to the multiracial society in Malaysia,” he told a press conference before officiating the PSN Troopers programme, here today.
Ewon said the PSN Trooperz programme was a rebranding of the PSN Outreach unit to raise awareness related science, technology and innovation among Malaysians.
The PSN Trooperz strategic partners are the Education Ministry, the Energy, Green Technology and Water Ministry, PSN, Kreativiti Terengganu, Centre Sains Malaysia and the private sector. – BERNAMA
