Embark on a Space Adventure at The Mind Museum!The Mind Museum
Everyone is fascinated by outer space. When it comes to the wonders of the universe, every one of us is a child looking up and marveling at what is out there.
Whatever drives your curiosity about outer space, there is an adventure waiting for you at The Mind Museum’s upcoming traveling exhibition, Space Adventure: Journey to the Wonders of the Universe! This is an exhibition conceived and created by The Mind Museum, with the support of exhibit partners Department of Science and Technology (DOST), Neltex, LEGO, and special thanks to Celestron, Urban Greens, Datem, Daegu National Science Museum and Option A.
Scheduled for launch on September 20, 2019 in Ayala Malls Capitol Central, Space Adventure invites kids from 2 to 102 to embark on an adventure into the wonders of the universe. The interactive exhibits and play areas of Space Adventure will engage the imagination and curiosity of toddlers and young kids.
Space Adventure is divided into different themed areas – In Fantastic Universe guests will learn about our links to the stars. In fact, one exhibit is called I Am Star Stuff, where the optical illusion reveals to guests that we are literally made of star stuff! In Fantastic Universe, kids will learn about constellations and star patterns by playing with the Star Wheel and the Geoboard. Guests can also marvel at the Cosmic Calendar, which compresses the 13.8-billion year history of the universe into one calendar year, with the Big Bang in January 1 and the appearance of humans in the final minutes of December 31.
In Discover Our Solar System, guests will learn about our neighborhood in space. By interacting and playing with the exhibits in this area, kids will learn why Pluto is no longer called a planet, why the Moon has phases, and many more. They will even get to hop on different planets and see what their weight is on Jupiter or Mercury!
In Explore Outer Space, they will play pretend to “launch rocket balls” to Mars in Mission to Mars. Meanwhile in the Mars Space Station they will learn about the challenges of living on Mars and some of the ideas scientists have of overcoming those challenges to help future astronauts survive and work in another world. Young kids can also play around with basic shapes and colors while learning about rockets in Rocket Shapes and Launch Pad Play Area. Explore the different geodesic domes or step into the Teleporter, a booth with mirrors that gives the guests an illusion of floating in space.
The newest section Philippines Goes to Space! has interactive games that features Philippine space technology projects spearheaded by the Department of Science and Technology.
There is something out there in space for everybody, and there is something in Space Adventure for everyone interested in space. Scattered throughout Space Adventure are play areas and activity tables where even the youngest kids and their adult companions can bond and go on a space adventure together. There are also many exhibits designed to help K-12 students appreciate and understand their classroom lessons more.
Asking questions about space is both one of humanity’s oldest pastimes, and most forward-looking ventures. Space Adventure provides an opportunity for everyone to be kids again marveling at the majesty of our universe. Lastly, Space Adventure is part of a continuing series of science-themed traveling exhibitions available for booking across the country.
