I’m so happy that my baby loves going to museums. For her 3rd birthday a couple of months ago, our gift to her was a trip to the museum. She was so happy. We spent the entire afternoon inside The Mind Museum at Bonifacio Global City. We are definitely so lucky that this museum is just a few blocks away from where we live. Because of her love for museums, I actually got her a whole year pass for a discounted price of Php 2250. It’s on discount until July 2016!
I believe that people (not just kids) should give more attention to STEM (Science / Technology / Engineering / Math). I believe that the world has changed so much that all of us need to learn our origins and the basics and as well as explore and discover new things that might eventually lead to something great in the future.
This is the reason why I always encourage my daughter to not to lose that love for museums. Recently, Globe Telecom and The Mind Museum even made all of these — science, discovery, exploration, etc. more fun and more accessible by launching The Mind Museum App. It’s a mobile app which promises an enhanced experience of the museum as you explore and discover gems of information. The app is already available for download on your Android and IOS devices.
One of the things that I love about it is that it gives me bits of information which I get as notification on my phone. I just feel that I get to be a little bit smarter everyday. Plus, I get to share this bit of information with my daughter. She has been so inquisitive lately.
It also offers a guide to the exhibit inside the Mind Museum.
It also has a few questions that you can use as a point of conversation with your child. I got to think of how homeschooling parents will love these. All they need to do is use the app to look for activities and information to supplement their own curriculum. This is perfect for teachers, too!
This portion on experiments is my favorite. My daughter gets bored easily so I always need to stimulate her mind with new activities and exercises that she can do. The Mind Museum app is amazing since it already gives me ideas on what activities to do at home with my little one.
It was already amazing when Maribel Garcia, TMM Curator and Fernando Esguerra, Globe Citizenship Director mentioned the benefits of the apps during the event, but when I downloaded it and used it, I was really impressed by it. The app is not only for museum-goers but also for teachers and students especially those outside Metro Manila.
