Megabugs Return! - Marvel At The Small Things In Life

Science Centre Singapore 
Jurong East, Singapore
June 2013

Singapore’s largest exhibition on insects, Megabugs Return! officially opened at the Science Centre Singapore (SCS) on 19 April 2013. Megabugs Return! is organised in partnership with Cityneon Events, P’ART1 Design and MediaCorp VizPro International and is held as a curtain raiser for Singapore Science Festival 2013.

The Megabugs Return! exhibition is on from 20 April 2013 to 18 August 2013. This exhibition aims to demystify the fear people have with insects by creating unique experiences for us to understand and appreciate these tiny creatures. The SCS first conceived Megabugs twenty years ago in 1994; since then, it has undergone chrysalis and reemerged with an updated exhibition filled with 14 animatronic insect machines as compared with 11 previously.

“Insects are all around us and they often get neglected with our preoccupation with modern comforts living within a sanitised bubble. This exhibition makes us stop and marvel at the small things in life, literally. Mother Nature made a multitude of insects with intricate details leading interesting lives.
It is time for humans to take a step back and relook at the splendour of insects.” 
- A/Prof Lim Tit Meng, Chief Executive, Science Centre Singapore
