KUCHING: Science experiments, soap making, traditional ethnic games and food, face painting, biodiversity origami and public awareness talks are just some of the activities lined up for the Sarawak Biodiversity Centre’s (SBC) Biodiversity Day on May 18 and 19.

The event which takes place at SBC’s premises at KM20, Jalan Borneo Heights, Semengoh, is open to the public and school students. It aims to create awareness on the many uses of biodiversity to mankind.

Visitors to SBC on these two days will also get a chance to try their hands at making herbarium specimens and also taste local delicacies of the many ethnic communities in Sarawak.

Visitors to the event will even get an opportunity to do a free basic health screening and get entertained by a talented clown who will make animal balloons for children.

A colouring contest for primary one, two and three pupils and a pottery painting contest for primary four, five and six pupils will also be held.

Updates on the upcoming event as well as details and forms for the colouring and pottery painting contests can also be viewed on the centre’s website, www.sbc.org.my.
