Science is Fun at the Philippine Science Centrum


I was browsing some old photos in my Picasa editor when I saw these funny photos of mine in the Philippine Science Centrum. I don't remember posting anything about it last year, so why not make an entry of it now! Good idea! Now I've got a post for the week.

Philippine Science Centrum Marikina
my head on a platter

It was one hot afternoon when we visited the Philippine Science Centrum in Riverbanks Mall, Marikina City last year. I actually didn't know that we have such kind of museum in Marikina. It was one of those days when you just want to wander without going too far. Thus, strolling around the city was the most viable option we had that time.

Science has been one of my favourite subjects since I was in grade school. I find it very interesting unlike Math which I find really boring. Studying anything about life in general really interests me. Who wouldn't want to learn about one's origin and humanity? I think there's no one. Do you agree?

Science is Fun!

The Philippine Science Centrum showcases a variety of exciting interactive science exhibits. They are presented in ways that will amaze and tickle every visitor's mind. We were able to try some of their featured interactive exhibits and I must say that it's a whole lotta fun!

I had a "hair-raising” experience with the Van de Graaff exhibit, had fun doing the “Matrix Move” at the Wonder House, felt the shake of different magnitudes of an Earthquake through the Earthquake simulator, made an illusion of floating in the air at the Anti-Gravity Mirror and saw what it’s like to have your head rest on a platter only at the Philippine Science Centrum! Check some of the evidences here. I know they aren't in great quality so please bear with the photos. These were taken over a year ago.

having fun eh?!

The Philippine Science Centrum is less extaravagant compared to the newly built The Mind Museum in Taguig, but staying true to their tagline "Science is fun", the Philippine Science Centrum really provides an atmosphere of learning while having fun. It is very ideal for student field trips, family activity and even barkada bonding. I browsed their official website and I can see that they continue to offer new features and exhibits year after year. They have more than 80 interactive exhibits now.

So if you're looking for a different kind of bonding activity (an inexpensive, educational, and fun experience) for the family besides going to the mall, then go to the Philippine Science Centrum. Spend some quality time and discover how fun science can be with interactive exhibits for everyone.
