Science Time Capsule
The idea of the Singapore Science Centre’s Science Time Capsule was initiated by the late Dr Toh Chin Chye, the founding Chairman of the People’s Action Party. In 1973, 112 industrial and everyday items were buried. It is Singapore first capsule chronicling nearly forty years of development and scientific progress. The artefacts held within the capsule paint a rich narrative of the economic and industrial evolution of Singapore.
In 2012, Pilot was invited to include its pens within the Science Time Capsule, a testament to the brand’s achievements in creativity and innovation. The Pilot Frixion series (featuring a unique, ground-breaking thermo-reactive ink that becomes invisible when subjected to heat – caused by friction) and the Pilot BeGreen series (comprising of environmentally friendly pens made from recycled materials), namely the V-Board Master and the B2P (Bottle to Pen), were included within the modernisation of pens.
Pilot was also a sponsor for the Science Time Capsule community project and exhibition in 2012. The exhibition was a feature of contemporary research and technologies of past scientific achievements, which gave youth an understanding of the pace of discovery and creation.
