10 Best Places to Bring Your Toddler Series

Want to visit the future? Bring your youngster to SM Science and Discovery Center. It is the country’s first highly interactive Science Learning Theme Park in a 3,000 square meter, two-level facility in SM Mall of Asia. Toddlers would love the virtual sports in Media City, where they get magically transported onto the screen, playing basketball or soccer with the computer. Most kids would enjoy the cockpit view in Transportation Nation, where they can simulate the flight of an airplane or helicopter. They also get the chance to chat with the titan fish from Verde Island, Mr. T, in Virtual Reef. Finally, kids can play the Robot Wars interactive battle (which can be addicting), where they get to control actual robots to pin down rival robots.

The highlights of the SM Science Discovery Center include the 360-degree dome Digistar Planetarium and the LEGO Mindstorms Robotics Center. Be warned that some toddlers get scared of the loud sounds and dark environment in the Planetarium. They might also be too young to appreciate programming robots in the Mindstorms center.

The futuristic staff of the Science Center love kids and are trained to interact with them very well. Also, they control the number of people entering at any given time, so it doesn’t get over-crowded. School field trips can fill up the Science Center, so it would be good to inquire prior to your scheduled trip with your kids.

Elevators are available to bring kids in strollers to and from the second floor. Food and drinks are not allowed inside, so don’t forget to eat before entering the center. The entrance fee for adults and children is priced at P330/head.
