In this second part we’ll walk around the updated Discovery Place the adevnture zone, a great place for younger kids to learn about the human body and interaction with computers equipped with sensors. Nearly all of the games require movement, so its good for health as well!
We start off with the pulse adventure machine which simulates the movement of blood vessels around the body, they move when you move and stop when you stop by measuring your heart beats.
Then we move on to the “circus game” where you have to catch falling fruits from the monkeys above hehe. Involves a lot of movement and can take 2 players.
Then theres the line, where you have to walk from one side to another with the view from the carpet below as if you’re moving from one skyscraper to another.
This section is what i liked the most. It illustrated electricity, magnetism and motors in a fun way:
The first example is the flying ring, which illustrates the properties of magnets.
The second example is an electricity Tree, which also has a couple of examples.
Are you a good goalie?
This camera will follow your movement in trying to stop these penalty shots.
The next was quite intersting, where you use air guns to move the balls in the court.
A game of precision throwing, where you try to throw bean balls within specific goals.
That’s the end of our tour for Today. The scientific center is a great area to take your kids, especially to have them do something different in the weekend, they will definately learn something new.
