Tech Dome Penang Turns 1 - Partners Recognition Evening

Tech Dome Penang is the place created as an opportunity for children to explore, discover and experience the amazing and great wonders of science. Tech Dome Penang has just turned 1 and it was a night of appreciation for all the continuous contributions and support that they have received along the way. The Tech Dome Penang Partners Recognition Evening was an event specially dedicated to express their gratitude for the never-ending support poured in from all their business associates.

I had the privilege and honour to be invited for their night of celebration.

Here's a recap of what took place that night.

A whole new fun learning experience awaits you on the floor above but before that, let's have a look at the event first shall we :) 

Look ma! A dinosaur and it walks too. 

Even our Penang CM, YAB Lim Guan Eng was caught surprise when he was greeted by the dinosaur :)

Dr Khong Yoon Loong, CEO of Tech Dome Penang gave his opening speech.

YAB Lim Guan Eng, Chief Minister of Penang giving his speech.

Of course, it was then time to pamper the palates of the guest. Mine was well pampered :p Food was just so appetizing.

Okay..okay. So what Tech Dome is all about? In short, it is a centre to discovery interesting science. As a young adult, upon seeing the thing they have back here, I felt like I was a child all over again. The excitement, thrill and anxiety just kicked in. It was indeed an amazing science playground but sadly by the time I wanted to be a kid all over again, they pulled the socket and turn off the electric. Not my luck. How sad haha.. It was pass the closing time when the event ended.

Well I could have gone and explored the centre earlier but I was so caught up at the Penang's 9th Observatory, which is the best in Penang. It's was really fascinating looking at the sky above via the telescopes especially seeing the moon, that was simply marvelous. 

The 16-inch aperture OFFICINA STELLARE main telescope is simply amazing. Just look at the scene viewed below. That's the moon up-close. 

Since its opening back in July 2016, Tech Dome Penang has welcomed more than 50,000 visitors. Over 250 school groups from all over Malaysia and 40 company groups who has done team-building with them. They are rated 4.9 out of 5.0 rating on Facebook, which is the best among all the attractions in Penang.

I guess I will have to make a trip over again to explore the centre.

Thanking Tech Dome Penang for having me over.

Congratulations to Tech Dome Penang on their 1st year Anniversary.
