4. Unwind at the Punggol Regional Library
If you’re looking to relax in quieter places this weekend, head over to Punggol Regional Library to check out their Punggol Stories exhibition.
There are four parts to the exhibition – Punggol Pioneers, Seaside Solace, Farm to Fable and Winding Waterways – and an interactive Memory Map, which features more than 50 memories of historical Punggol.
Also on the newly opened levels of the library is the ExperienceIT section showcasing exciting AI technology. This includes the AWS DeepRacer Arcade, which allows users to learn AI skills in a fun and engaging way, and RoboDog which simulates reinforcement learning.
5. Catch the Transformer statues at Gardens By the Bay for the last time
This weekend also marks the last chance for Transformers fans to catch the life-sized statues at Gardens by the Bay before they roll out of Singapore on Apr 10.
Towering over the Silver Leaf Garden, the statues are free and open for the public to take pictures from 5am to 12am daily.
Visitors can also scan a QR code found at the venue to access interactive features of the display.
