A Geeky Birthday at The Mind Museum!



It was Mike’s birthday yesterday and we celebrated by finally visiting The Mind Museum in Taguig! My boyfriend’s kind of a geek, so he was really excited about this (we’ve been thinking about going for a while now, but Taguig’s a bit far from where we live, so yeah)!
The Mind Museum is the first science museum of its scale and scope in the Philippines. New York Times science writer Natalie Angier wrote in her book, The Canon, that science literacy is the currency of this age and of that to come. 

The Mind Museum would like to help give the next generation of Filipinos this currency of mind. While The Mind Museum is not a substitute for schools, we would like to help breed scientific literacy that will help everyone, whoever you are and whatever you are doing in life, to be inspired to understand nature.
There are five main galleries - Atom, Life, Earth, Universe and Technology! My favorite would probably the Atom Gallery, because that’s where the Static Ball and Shadow Box are located. Seriously, we were like little kids, getting all giddy trying out the different interactive exhibits! We weren’t able to take lots of pictures though, because my camera’s still broken. But I do have some on my phone, like the ones above. I’m still thinking if I should post my photo from the Static Ball, because it’s funny and embarrassing at the same time. Sayang rin we weren’t able to take pictures of our epic shadow poses. Meh. Must remember to bring a more reliable camera on our next visit. 

Anyway, just a quick post on what happened yesterday. Will try to be less lazy when it comes to posting next time.
