Having just celebrated its second anniversary, The Mind Museum is excited to announce a new set of summer programs from April to May 2014.

1. C.S.I. 101
This program is a comprehensive module on the learning adventures of basic forensic science. It consists of excellent workshops, for age groups 10-13 and 14-17 years old. The participants will be divided into teams that will gather and analyze evidence from crime scenes, as well as present their cases to a panel of Investigators. “Staged” crime scenes make this supremely exciting! Winning teams and participants that perform extraordinarily well will be awarded badges at the end of the program.

There is also a Forensic Art workshop for the 18-25 age group which will introduce the participants to methods like composite sketching and forensic photography that are used to aid with solving cases.

Program Schedule & Rates:

9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. per day

  • 10-13 years old | April 8 | P1,500/head
  • 14-17 years old | April 11-13 | P3,800/head

2. MARINE SCIENCE CAMP w/ CALIFORNIA ACADEMY OF SCIENCES, in AIYANAR BEACH & DIVE RESORT, ANILAO BATANGAS
This is an outdoor adventure for families to create a deeper appreciation of the marine environment through science. Participants get to know more about marine biodiversity & ecosystems, with an add-on astronomy/stargazing session at night! Mind Musem's partner, a team from the California Academy of Sciences, will be sharing their expedition stories as well as share marine observation tools and engage participant,s as they learn responsible snorkelling and the basics on coral reef surveying. Take a dip and literally look into the ocean’s coral reefs!

3. JUNIOR MIND MOVER PROGRAM
Now on its 3rd year, and hailed by many parents whose kids have enrolled in it as “transformative,” the month-long Junior Mind Mover (JMM) program consists of a series of exercises and workshops that are designed to expose kids to the work of scientists in museums. The JMMs will learn deeply about the Museum exhibits, as well as creative science communication through experiment demonstrations and activities on the different fields of science.

Program Schedule & Rates:

  • 7-9 years old | Apr 23-May 10, Wed-Fri, 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. | P2,500/head

4. SOCCER SCIENCE
This is both a full soccer game and a science workshop! A worldwide favourite, this sport will be understood through the lens of science. This program aims to help people see the many physics principles at play in a game and how knowledge of physics and science in general can help improve their performance. People who have no knowledge in football but are interested in science will also enjoy dissecting the forces that causes curve balls, the trajectories of long shots, and the anatomy of a skilled player. What is more is that they will work with a “secret” kind of ball with powers that we bet you have never known before! Understanding soccer can help you play better!
