Deception and Illusion at The Mind Museum Science Circus

Posted on

My family and I caught the latest traveling exhibit, The Mind Museum Science Circus. Only on a limited run, the exhibit showcases the amusing, the peculiar, and the extraordinary through three rings, Deception Perception, Pieces of Incredible Engineering, and Encounters with the Masters. The exhibit can be found right in front of the main entrance. You might be expecting a huge exhibit but don’t worry though it might be modest in size but the interactive displays are well worth the visit.

The combination of science and the awe-inspiring demonstrations and death-defying stunts of a circus are the perfect way to engage interest in perception, engineering and illusion.

Entrance to the Science Circus is every 90 minutes and you’re free to take your time to solve the puzzles and try the various illusions and trickery on display.

Bastian and Kianna recently learned about Tangrams and they were excited to see the puzzles before them.

Of course a trip to The Mind Museum wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the main museum. Jael and I had been here previously but it was Bastian and Kianna’s first time. Kianna, Jael and I went off to discover more of the museum and Bastian and his girlfriend, Chelsea went off on their own.

I coulnd’t let a chance pass by to take a picture with this huge bar of chocolate so prominently displayed.

The Mind Museum is truly a wonder for budding enthusiasts of anything science related. It was fun seeing Kianna’s reaction to the exhibits especially since she’s learning most of them.

Even at my age there’s still a fascination and we stopped by each one to read up and either try or look closely at the exhibits.

Since our last visit, a new section has been added which  concentrates on the development of teens, physically, emotionally and mentally. I took a particular interest in this exhibit having 2 teens myself.

A Visit to Trick Art Museum at Manila Film Center

Posted on

For the longest time I’ve been wanting to try trick art. I finally did with Jael during his field trip and we had a blast! We went to a miniature trick art museum at Manila Film Center, Pasay City but there were plenty of murals for us to pose in front of.

Fair warning this post is an overload of images sharing the various murals we had tons of fun posing in front of!

Learning About Safety at MMDA Childrens Road Safety Park

Posted on

Jael went to 3 places for his field trip one being the MMDA Childrens Road Safety Park. MMDA created the park which features bike lanes, road signs, a footbridge, sidewalks with curbs, a drainage system, waiting shed, hospital, fast food carts, a comfort room and a gas station. Patterned after Singapore’s Road Safety Park, the area is 4,600 sq. m. Traffic rules and road safety can be taught in this controlled environment.

In the Philippines it’s all the more important that kids learn this because it can literally be a hazard to your health crossing the streets. Though there are pedestrian lanes some people still cross where they want. Also, footbridges are provided but people still choose to cross the street which leads to accidents.

The purpose of the park is to teach road safety and the potential dangers on the road. They are also taught the importance of observing traffic rules and regulations.

Children learned about road signs and what they mean. They were also taught a cool Twinkle Twinkle Traffic Light song.

mmda-childrens-road-safety-park-manila-lifestyle-mommy-blogger-philippines-www-artofbeingamom-com-02

After the lesson the kids got to tour the park but they had to follow the rules and regulations. Here’s Jael on a miniature foot bridge.
