The Mind Museum at Bonifacio Global City in Taguig is the first world-class Science Museum in the Philippines. Its vision is to be the country’s center for the public understanding of science, enthralling guests with its beauty, clarity and the intriguing character.  This is not an ordinary science museum but a beautiful piece of art work with designs made by Filipino artists working with Filipino scientists and engineers to clearly and beautifully flesh out a Science principle or fact. 90% of the exhibits were done by carefully selected local fabricators who also do work for science museums abroad. (Yay to Filipino Pride!)

Sony Philippines helps bring to life the magic of Science through its partnership with The Mind Museum. The galleries come alive with SONY – from the littlest of things found in the Atom gallery to the biggest, in the Universe gallery. The company provided the latest top-of-the-line and state-of-the-art gadgets such as Bravia LCD television units, touch screen VAIOs, 3D Projector Systems, among others, to the first world class Science museum in the Philippines. Sony is inspired to educate the next generations in creating a sustainable environment while having fun through Science programs. That’s why they will also be providing workshops for kids to teach them about the technology and how they work.

The Atom Gallery has exhibit pieces that show the strange world of the very small in terms of forces and particles. The giant fly on the giant chocolate bar represents the small things in the atom gallery. The tiniest particles come alive in the Sony Bravia TV screens and Sony 3D active glasses. VAIO touch screen units are also present in this gallery to show a video on the use of nuclear energy and about nuclear physics.

Here, you can get a glimpse at the amazing transformation of life from mere DNA particles into complete organisms. The Life Gallery also has a giant human brain model, which will leave guests in awe. There are “brain spots” where guests can step onto and it will light that part of the giant brain.

The Earth Gallery tells of the story of the planet and our archipelago across the breadth of time; it includes a 3D animated film made by an all-Filipino crew that features 4.6 billion years of the planet’s natural history and evolution in 12 minutes.

“The Mind Museum also has an outdoor Science-in-the-Park where visitors can experience playful science through four-themed pockets: Music, Math, Living and Water. Other educational offerings include facilities such as an auditorium, laboratory and classrooms, for educational workshops which explore how things work and the relationship of science to other fields of learning.” The park is not yet finished when we went there for a sneak preview. I’m sure it will be an awesome sight when 100% done already.

“Beyond providing cutting-edge technology, Sony will sustain its collaboration with The Mind Museum by holding workshops related to technology when it formally opens to the public on March 16, 2012.  (Sony is the exclusive electronic partner of The Mind Museum.)”
