Eighty underprivileged children enjoyed an educational day-out at Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) recently, thanks to Petrosains.

Petronas organised the trip for the children from Pusat Jagaan Siraman Kasih and Pertubuhan Kebajikan dan Pendidikan Permata Rohani.

The children went on a guided tour of the Petronas Twin Towers, where they were brought to the Skybridge at level 41 and Observation Deck at level 86, and later to Petrosains, The Discovery Centre to watch a science show on combustion, followed by the breaking of fast.

 

Petrosains Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Fedora Zulkifli said the event was part of their year-long 20th anniversary celebration.

“We are proud and humbled to have reached this significant milestone and hope to continue delivering more creative and impactful learning experiences that will inspire people, especially the younger generation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
