Virtual reality simulations, optical illusions, three-dimension films and detailed replicas are among the attractions for children and the young at heart at the Exploreum at SM Mall of Asia.
They learn while having fun.
SM Lifestyle Entertainment, Inc. (SMLEI) introduces the newly revamped SM Science Center as the “Exploreum” for curious minds wanting to explore the field of science.
The eight main galleries of the Exploreum cover a wide range of topics related to life on earth and the fundamental nature of the cosmos.
“The Natural World” exhibit gives the guest an in-depth view of flora and fauna, carnivorous plants, the world’s smallest animal, and how insects communicate with each other.
“The Human Adventure” helps guests understand the human brain and the different organs that make the body.
“Zoom” explores the most fascinating aspects of how humankind has flown, soared, chugged and sped through the years.
“Connect” investigates all the ways we express ourselves—from written to spoken, symbolic to electronic, gestural to text.
“Cyberville” is a one-of-a-kind hands-on gallery that features robots, solar-powered devices, and local inventions.
The “Space Camp” is an out-of-this-world experience that lets one’s imagination soar as the guest explores meteorites, black holes, cosmic rays and more.
“The Living Earth” exhibit peels back the layers of the earth’s core to reveal the origin we call home.
The largest planetarium in the Philippines, “The SM Planetarium” is a 180-degree full dome theater that will feature digital graphics and videos.
Aside from the eight exhibits, young scientists can experiment with the different properties of matter and machine work in the “Discovery Room.”
At the “Science Park,” they can learn by playing with shapes, slides, sounds and colors.
“The Exploreum is a total immersion, to stimulate curiosity and inspire science learning in everyone by creating fun and memorable experiences, because we value science as an indispensable tool for understanding our world and enriching people’s lives,” says Nicole Deato, assistant vice president for Education and Leisure Center of SMLEI.
