The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

Team ASP discovers the new SM Exploreum

The SM Lifestyle Entertainment, Incorporated (SMLEI), through SM Cares, recently invited Autism Society Philippines to be among the first guests of the newly renovated Exploreum at the SM Mall of Asia. Eight new galleries which include 250 interactive exhibits will continue to show educational content through state-of-the art technologies. Exploreum is a place of total immersion that will stimulate curiosity and inspire interest in science. It’s guiding principle is to make science relevant in everyday life at the same time make learning fun and interactive for its patrons.

Exploreum had its soft opening and ASP had its first taste of the new Exploreum last 9 August 2014, bringing in a total of 50 CWAs with their parents. The CWA’s had a fun day exploring the whole center and taking curious walks through the new galleries. Below are the parents’ testimonials on their experience at Exploreum with their kids:

CWAs and Family in SM Exploreum

Monique Pinpin with son, Mico: “We enjoyed exploring the exhibit of helicopter models especially my son who is fond of looking at the spinning of its ‘elisi’ and the different wheels used for transportation. Thank to SM Exploreum for inviting us.”

Leyminda Maranon, with son Julliann: “He was happy and enjoyed the event. He immediately told his dad about his experience through phone call right after the event. He learned about what happens in day and night through the planetarium show. Most of all, he socialized well with other CWAs.”

Imelda Alviso, with son Paulo: “My kid enjoyed it especially the many trivias written. It’s very informative and SM Exploreum employees are very friendly and smiling. The facilities helped them in turn taking, waiting, focusing, and listening to different sounds.”

Annabelle Saman, with son Gerard John: “We really had fun and my son enjoyed the exhibit especially about the solar system, earth and volcano. And the gallery attendant was also impressed that he knew about how many planets we have and he named them in order. He also enjoyed the show from planetarium and he felt like travelling to the moon. Thanks a lot to SM Exploreum for this opportunity.”

Agripina Macaroy, with nephew Lance: “We really had a great time exploring the Exploreum. It was so amazing and very educational. My nephew really loves Exploreum, especially the vintage cars that’s why he wishes to go back there again.”
