The Mind Museum Summer Programs 2013
A Science Exploration For Young Minds
Mind and Body
Museums in Metro Manila
Deiville.com had a first-hand feel of Philippines’ first worlds class museum – The Mind Museum during its exhibit testing made for selected people. At that time it was held at the NBC Tent (also in BGC) while the museum is largely under-construction. It was an amazing experience where we, the model testers went goofing around the interactive prototypes and turning nerds from the information gasped from one post to another. Mind Museum makes Science more fun, thrilling, interesting and alive with its high-tech approach and attractive visuals. We were caught lying on the floor watching the Milky Way, having a wild science adventure with Bernoulli’s Principle, the solar bugs, forming tornadoes and a lot more!
Bloggers and parents alike entertain ourselves like we were kids before, the displays were like toys for us grown ups, much more to the children. 🙂
Give your kids a full treat (and jolt!) by enrolling them to the Mind Museum Summer Programs 2013, choose from three (3) different summer 2013 programs: CSI 101, Survival Science and Junior Mind Movers Program.
More details about The Mind Museum 2013 Summer Programs
1. CSI 101 is open to ages 14 to 17 years old. The TMM staff will only provide guidance for each activity. CSI 101 participants will be grouped into teams and will conduct the scientific investigations on their own. The activities will consist of laboratory training, crime scene investigation, and evidence analysis. The participants will also be trained in safety in the laboratory.
2. Survival Science is open to ages 14 to 17 years old. The TMM staff will only provide guidance for each activity. Survival Science participants will be encouraged to independently apply the knowledge and skills learned in the program.
IMPORTANT: For CSI 101 and Survival Science, it has to be noted that although the Mind Museum encourages learning for all ages, the activities for both programs have been designed specifically for students in high school or approaching college. Thus, applicants must be of the appropriate age on the start date of the program.
3. The Junior Mind Mover Program is open to kids ages 10 to 17 years old. It will consist of a series of exercises and workshops that are designed to help familiarize the JMMs with the Mind Mover’s responsibilities: specifically, explaining science in a simple yet creative way during spiels and performing experiments, as well as interacting and adjusting to different audiences. It is basically learning how to make learning.

The CSI 101 program is quiet appealing even for adults, I’m inclined to join any future programs catered for say matured people? 🙂 Just knowing the basics perceives curiosity and engaging activity. Also on a lighter side, maybe child/adult series can be set up next time, it will serve as bonding activity for family as well (a silly suggestion from a goofy parent) 🙂
