Just in time for summer, SM Lifestyle Entertainment, Inc. (SMLEI) relaunches last Friday (March 6) its state-of-the art science learning facility at the Mall of Asia in Pasay City – the fully renovated EXPLOREUM.
The Exploreum is meant to provide visitors a total immersion edutainment experience that aims to stimulate curiosity and inspire science learning in everyone by creating fun, memorable experiences through its 118 child-friendly all-new interactive exhibits and over 100 interesting nuggets of information situated in eight major interactive galleries namely the Natural World, Human Adventure, Zoom, Connect, Cyberville, Space Camp, the Living Earth, and Science Park.
Aside from the galleries, Exploreum is also home to two other special features, the Science on a Sphere (SOS) and the DOME theater (formerly called the Planetarium).
Science on a Sphere
There are attractions similar to the Science on a Sphere in other countries but this is the first and only one of its kind here in the Philippines. SOS is a room-sized digital globe that projects real-time, dynamic (holographic) images of the earth and other planets, climate changes, ocean temperatures and even air traffic. Developed by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the SOS is an interactive exhibit located at the lobby of the Exploreum that allows visitors to control the face of the sphere through a tablet.
Formerly called the Planetarium, the 158-seater DOME theater of Exploreum earned the bragging rights for being the only theater in the Philippines that has a 180-degree digital screen and advanced audio-visual system operating on Digi-star 5 which promises a photo-realistic experience, clear cut image projections and crisp surround sound that makes you feel like you’re really there as if the cosmos are just within reach.
Here are more photos of the Exploreum relaunch event:
This May, the Exploreum will also be holding its Summer Camp 2015! This summer program offers kids ages 4-12 years old to become a science explorer through fun and games. Children will be exposed to practical science experiments that can help them appreciate how the world works. The camp starts on May 8 and ends on May 10.
Exploreum gave us a sample of some of the experiments and science activities that the kids will enjoy during the three-day Summer Camp!
Science Quiz Bee
SMLEI will be hosting its first ever Science Quiz Bee, a nationwide inter-school competition that will focus on all branches of science. Running from July 2015 to February 2016, the winning school will take home a grand prize of 1 million pesos. Moreover, SMLEI will be giving away cash prices weekly, monthly, and quarterly in each of the qualifying competitions leading to the grand tournament.
For a more meaningful, fun and fact-filled summer, I recommend you visit the Exploreum at the SM Mall of Asia and SM Lanang Premiere.
