The NCeries Space Science Roadshow.

There's a space show happening right now at SM San Pablo, and the little man and I were there the other day to check it out.
Yue at the Space Show!
The event is actually called 'NCeries Space Science Roadshow', a mobile interactive educational event that features exhibits, interactive shows, and state-of-the-art equipment to bring space science to life.
Little man learning about meteorites.
A complete resource provider for space technology and astronomy, the NCeries is founded by former Senator Nikki Coseteng, who is now an educator and president of the Diliman Preparatory School.
Rocks from space!
He just can't get enough of the meteorite/rock display.
Astronomical binoculars.
A fragment of the Allende meteorite.
The space show features three major activities - the Space Science Exhibit, which showcases a rare collection of authentic meteorites, state-of-the-art equipment, and photographs that highlight the solar system and space explorations; a Film Showing, featuring documentaries on space science and astronomical breakthroughs; and the Space Dome, a digital mobile planetarium that stimulates a 360-degree display of celestial objects in a unique digital environment.
The Space Dome.
The Space Dome can accommodate up to 120 people inside for its 30-minute interactive show. We paid Php100 each for the tickets to the Space Dome - that's Php50 off from the original price. All the other activities in the Space Show are free of charge.
Planetarium, here we come!
In certain occasions, the Space Show also offers solar viewing and stargazing sessions using high-powered telescopes. I reckon they do this during school visits, provided that the weather is good (i.e. no rain, clear skies).
My little space explorer!
My little man, who is an aspiring aerospace engineer (that's what he wrote as his ambition in his yearbook), enjoyed the Space Show a lot - from the rocks and instruments on display, to the planetarium and the interactive show. Seeing all these made him all the more interested in rocket ships and astronauts. I won't be surprised if he asks me to take buy him a telescope one of these days. Haha!

If you're in San Pablo or living nearby, do visit the Space Show with your kids! They'll be at the SM City San Pablo Atrium until this Sunday (May 25) only!

My son, a science buff himself, would really be interested in this NCeries Space Science Roadshow. I hope they'll also visit malls near us so he could experience it, too. -- Maria Teresa Figuerres

Nice naman for the space show to set up in San Pablo! I'm sure it was educational, interesting, and fun for the kids.

If you make it the the U.S., be sure to visit the US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama! Your son would love it. There's a complete rocket ship -- full-size, INDOORS! And a piece of the moon. And lots more.

Looks like you had a fabulous time!

I hope they come to the Fairview area! Would love to bring the kids there.

Very cool, I love anything that encouraged kids (especially girls) to be involved in science.

Even if I am already twen-teen, ;) I still get excited over exhibits and shows! It is nice that there is something like that set up in SM San Pablo. I am sure the kids had a great time exploring the exhibit :)

My husband really loves astronomy. Must be a boy thing. He wants to go watch a meteor shower tomorrow and I really want to say no, but I'll be a good wife and say yes, because deep down I know it will be fun. :)

Marie said...

my son would love this! He is so into science!

Emily Reviews said...

My daughter would think that going to that would be super cool!

Nostalgia moment. I remember my visit at the Science Centrum when I was still a kid (around 10 years old). Science was very interesting for me back then until I discovered language and literature. lol
