One thing is for sure, the SM Science Discovery Center will have a big impact on Aidan’s generation. You don’t have to go Singapore to experience a similar Science Discovery Center where you can teach your kids how science and technology will affect our lives. I also liked the environmental focus of the Science Discovery Center and it will teach Filipinos to be sensitive about our environment. My sincere thanks to the Sy Family for creating this Discovery Center.
I took a leap of faith as I paid P330/person entrance fee for myself and Aidan on the opening of Science Discovery Center last Saturday. Only one year old kids and below are free. Just think about going to Singapore to enjoy something like this and the P330 will be a bargain. Don’t compare it to your playtime in Timezone because this is an educational center and more hi-tech than your usual recreational game center. Remember your field trip to the now dilapidated Planetarium in Manila? The new generation will now enjoy the awesome Planetarium inside the Discovery Center.
I do hope they have an frequent pass (good 1 or 2 years) like they do in Singapore because you can only do as much in one visit. This is a good brainwashing tool for your kids to learn to love science and technology. I know families who still avoid Mall of Asia because of the crowd. But the opening of Science Discovery Center would definitely give them a reason to go to MOA.
Complete with star field and astronomical capabilities plus digital surround sound, our dome-screened 158-seat Digistar Planetarium creates environment that completely immerse you in images that educate through fun.

“Sniff Sniff. Peeeeee Yuuuuuu! People stink. Our bodies are home to some very stinky creatures called bacteria. They love to eat sweat. Armpits and feet are covered with oozing sweat pores. Once the bacteria munch on ti — stink city. What causes the stink? It’s the waste products from the bacteria. Inside your mouth live millions of bacteria. During sleep, your mouth stays quiet while bacteria feast on food particles, reproduce, and make wastes. The result is slimy “Morning Mouth.” Bacteria also make some toots smell bad. Inside your large intestine or colon, bacteria gobble leftover food and make two very stinky chemicals — indole (IN dohl) and Skatole. “
