In Marikina: Philippine Science Centrum

Philippine Science Centrum (PSC), a flagship program of the Philippine Foundation for Science and Technology, is a premier hands-on science center museum in the country recognized by the Department of Education, Department of Science and Technology and the Department of Tourism. Catering for all ages, PSC is a great place for educational field trips or family and barkada bonding where visitors can learn and interact with the centrum 2013 (6) When I was posting this (November 2013), I thought the Philippine Science Centrum is no longer in Marikina after the onslaught of Typhoon Ondoy. I don’t see any signages anywhere in Marikina even at Riverbanks. But after a quick Google search, I found some articles and websites (Philippine Science Centrum Facebook Page) saying that It is still here in the City. As of December 2014, PSC boasts of more than a hundred hands-on exhibits grouped in eleven exciting galleries:

  • Lights
  • Body works
  • Mathematics
  • Electricity & Magnetism
  • Water
  • Vision and Perception
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Earth Science
  • Space
  • Kids World
  • Mechanics
