An Icy Adventure at the Science Discovery Center.
Growing up science was always a chore for me to learn. No offense to my science teachers, but for the most part, complex lectures about science principles were not very interesting, especially for someone like me who is a visual-kinesthetic learner. Kids nowadays, however, can learn science in a FUN and INTERESTING way!
Located in the Southside Entertainment Mall of SM Mall of Asia is a world of wonder and discovery — The Nido Fortified Science Discovery Center. It is said to be the country’s premiere science museum. Unlike most museums where one just looks and observes, the center features over 400 hands-on and interactive exhibits which are aggregated into 9 galleries. From a talking fish to shaking floors, virtual sports games and flying airplanes, it a trip to the Science Discovery Center will definitely be great fun.
Besides the amazing and wowing exhibits, the center features the Philippines’ most advanced planetarium and dome theater. It was here that bloggers, media, school representative and other guests were treated to the gala premiere of the theaters latest feature, Ice Worlds.
Ice Worlds is a documentary that highlights the delicate balance between ice, water and our very existence on this planet. Narrated by British Actress Emily Watson, the film offers brilliant eye catching images of wonderful icy landscapes.
The event was presented by SMART and sponsored by Nestle Nido Fortified, Coca-Cola, and BDO. It was supported by WWF Philippines, Mrs.Field’s Cookie Cafe, Digipost, A-Z Direct Marketing, and Timelife. Yehey.com was the online media partner.
Perhaps for my preschoolers, this would not be a very interesting field trip, but for middle graders, it will definitely be a lot of fun. For inquiries and ticket reservations, call 556-2153 Group booking is also entertained at 556-0331.
