We are all used to circuses where we see acrobats, jugglers, clowns, and exotic animals. This summer, Bacolodnons are treated with a different kind of circus that’s beyond the traditional. Instead of watching trapeze flyers, audiences get to interact with exhibits that boggle the senses but broaden the mind. The Science Circus is in town.
The Science Circus At The Robinson’s Place Bacolod
This type of circus has to be the first in the City of Smiles. My son, Gionne, and I attended the opening last April 5, 2018. The event was hosted by Bacolod’s very own John Arceo and was graced by Councilor Cindy Rojas, as well as representatives from the museum that started the traveling exhibit, the Mind Museum.
What To See At The Science Circus
There are plenty of interactive exhibits that you and your family can enjoy. Check the slide above to see what the different exhibits are. Basically, there are 12 sections on display. Each section has an information card which will guide you on how to work the display. Some cards contain scientific information, while some give you instructions. It’s best to read the card to know what to do. There are no guides so make reading a habit.
When you move to an illusion display, find the square you see in the photo above. This is where you should be standing so you can get the best angle for your photo.
