Yesterday, Ralph and I attended the advanced screening of "Ice Worlds" a documentary film about the existence of ice in the Earth's polar caps and its relation to global warming and climate change. It will be shown starting on June 23, 2009 at the NIDO Fortified Science Discovery Center at the SM Mall of Asia. This science museum is formerly known as the SM Science Discovery Center.
Aside from getting to witness the advance screening of the said documentary film, we were also able to go around the museum and enjoy the exhibits. The last time we visited the place, we were not able to spend more time with each exhibit as there were excursionists. The best time to visit the place, I gathered, was on a non-school day.
The Gravitram is the newest exhibit in the science museum. Gravitram is short for Gravity Tramway, a rolling ball sculpture created by Shabtay Levy and George Hohnstein wayback in 1973. Aside from the NIDO Fortified Science Discovery Center, various museums around the world also exhibit the Gravitram.
The NIDO Fortified Science Discovery Center is located at the Southside Entertainment Mall, SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City and is open daily from 10 AM to 10 PM. For more information and ticket reservations, you may call 556-2153 and 556-0331 (group booking).
