Nido Science Discovery Center and Discovery Channel Join Forces

My kids, particularly my youngest son, always enjoy visiting the Nido Fortified Science Discovery Center (NFSDC) at the Mall of Asia. There usually seems to be something new each time we go there. Aside from the many awesome and interactive galleries and exhibits, we most look forward to their newest 3D planetarium shows.

Last Friday, NFSDC and Discovery Channel officially announced a partnership that aims to come up with some of best science learning experiences for Filipino children. I, personally, am excited to see what new things are in store for those of us who love learning new things in the most fun of ways in the next few months. To read my past entries about the NFSDC, please visit the feature I wrote at and here in this blog.
