First of all, we are not allowed to take photos of the exhibit so don’t expect amazing works of arts and science here. Yes, we can but for personal use only hence I can’t share my shots. Since this is all about imaginative minds, let me just challenge your senses by naming some of the exhibits - Whirlpool, Bernoullis Principle, Listen to your Heart, Air/Tornado, Canopy of Life, Solar Bugs and my favorite – Space Shell. I always fall for stars… so exploring the outer space is on my bucket list. The roving space shell reminds me of the Planetarium when I was a grader. Alright, I’m leaving everything to your imagination.
We were given a checklist and we rated each exhibit according to ease of use/view, ease of understanding and how interesting it is. This is just a exhibit-testing so the actual displays would be far better, I supposed. There are guides who explained what the exhibit is all about, how to use the controls, and so on. I have to admit, sometimes, I’m too afraid to experiment. But this exhibit taught me once again that we should not be afraid of science. Instead, interact with it. Speaking of interaction, there are exhibits that are less interesting because it lacks interactive approach. This is just one of the feedback I’ve submitted after going through each exhibit.
Science, Math and English are my three favorite subjects and this exhibit-testing reminds me of how I excel on these subjects (modesty aside) when I was a student. The library is my favorite place when I was in grade school. Science books had been my bestfriends back then especially the Universe hardcover series. It’s not always about the pictures, it’s more on interesting facts that I learn each day. At The Mind Museum, I feel like reliving my SCIENTIFIC days.
Once this one-billion project is completed, I’ll be there to explore it!
On top of interesting and mind-tickling exhibits, I’ve also met fellow bloggers who are all enthusiastic about The Mind Museum.
Nice meeting you guys! Thanks Tristan for the invites!
I, Liz of www.wordyliz.com just lit a star at The Mind Museum. I’m encouraging you to do the same!
Did you know that females are smarter than males? Is this for real? I, being a female, love this fact and strongly believe that I’m smarter than some of the guys! But before all the males out there growl at me, read on. This statement is found very evident in female dogs, too. And if you wish to know more trivia and find amazing science articles, you may now head to The Mind Museum.
Its vision is to build a home for science and to make it the first world-class science museum in the Philippines. The museum aims to present science as entertaining and engaging part of life. The two-level museum features these awesome galleries:
The Story of the Universe: Its Beginning and Majesty
The Story of the Earth: Its Story Across the Breadth of Time
The Story of Life: The Exuberant Varieties of Life
The Story of the Atom: The Strange World of the Very Small
The Story of Technology: The Showcase of Human Ingenuity
On May 26, 2011, The Mind Museum’s first exhibit testing event will be held at the NBC Tent, Bonifacio Global City and it’s themed Minds at Work.
Let’s help promote science in the country by building imaginative minds through volunteerism or sponsorship. Mechanics can be found here.
