First Science Centre in Borneo?

According to the same report, the Science Centre will be the first dedicated Science Centre across Borneo.

Our checks found out there is indeed no dedicated or huge Science Centre in Borneo, which includes Brunei and Kalimantan to date.

However, Brunei does have the Seria Energy Lab which somewhat doubles as a science centre which was previously more focused on Oil and Gas.

We couldn’t find any information on a dedicated science centre in Kalimantan, and neighboring Sabah had stated they are planning to build one and had identified several locations for such project.

However, there hasn’t been any mention of a Science Centre materializing in Sabah just yet.
