Pi Day Celebrations 2016

14 March was Pi Day - since some people write that date as 3.14 - and a number of our Members took that occasion again to celebrate that fascinating number as well as Albert Einstein's birthday, which happens to fall on the same day.

Some of Petrosains' many activities involved cookies:
  

 

 

The Mind Museum had a Pi-ku competition: 
  

 

 

And the Science Centre Singapore had a Pi March and much more: 
  

 

Hope you had a happy Pi Day too!

 

Message from the ASPAC President

Dear Members and Friends of ASPAC

Greetings from the ASPAC Executive Council 2016-2017!

On behalf of all Executive Council Members, I thank everyone for your continual support and partnership in our collective efforts to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) locally in our respective community, as well as globally as part of the larger cooperation.

Through the Council election and also co-option process, we have a full EXCO with representations from across Asia Pacific. The EXCO constitutes the following volunteers:

President TM LIM (Science Centre Singapore)
Vice President Alan BRIEN (Scitech, Australia)
Treasurer Andy GIGER (Science Centre Singapore)
Secretary Nahoko ANDO (Miraikan, Japan)
General Councillors    Geng TU (Miraikan, Japan)  
Saiful BAHAROM (Petrosains, Malaysia)  
Minjung KIM (National Science Musuem, Korea) 
Maria Isabel GARCIA (Mind Museum, Philippines) 
Wei SHU (China Science Technology Museum, China)
Aphiya Hathayatham (National Science Museum, Thailand)
Graham WALKER (Australian National University, Australia)

 

We specially want to thank CK YIP for continuing his service as ASPAC Executive Director to help our Network coordinate efforts, plan activities and discussion agenda.  Without his invaluable help we would just be a loose net with no proper networking in place!

We will continue the good leadership of past EXCO, working within our Constitutional Objectives to promote and encourage friendly collaboration, networking and innovative sharing of ideas, exhibits and programmes.  We will also link Members with global initiatives and other science centre networks where relevant and applicable.

Wishing everyone a successful 2016 and looking forward to our annual gathering at ASPAC2016 in CSTM, Beijing!

Yours sincerely,
TM
