The Robot Zoo
With my siblings and two house members at the Robot Zoo
Three weeks ago before Christmas Day, we were at the Mall of Asia and we happen to pass by the Robot Zoo and decided to check it out. We were like children once again.
Developed by Evergreen Exhibits and designed by the United Kingdom’s Marshall Editions, the Robot Zoo is actually a traveling exhibit. It has toured science and natural history museums and zoos in Europe, North America and other parts of the globe. It was officially opened to the public last June 2012 at the Science Discovery Center Exhibit Hall , Mall of Asia and will run for a limited time and then it will be moved to Kuwait this year.
The zoo featured eight animatronic giant animals that simulate how they move in real life. The robotic animals were designed with cutaways that exposed their mechanical interior and can be controlled by the guests. Highlighted in the exhibit were the following animals : Giraffe, platypus, grasshopper, chameleon, squid, fly, rhino and bat. Each animal in the Robotic Zoo included some trivia and inteactive games for the kids.
The Zoo is not only a fun and exciting learning tool for children but also a great venue for family bonding
