Ever wonder what really happens when we turn on the lights every day? Or where a house’s power source comes from? It’s time to rediscover what power really means in the Philippines—the fun and interactive way! Energy leader Pilipinas Shell opened the doors to its newly upgraded Malampaya Exhibit at The Mind Museum last December 8.
Museum visitors will be treated to an experiential walkthrough to understand more deeply the journey of natural gas. Watch how gas is formed, extracted, and distributed from start to end before it powers up to 40% of homes in Luzon.
Kids and kids-at-heart can play and gain more knowledge at the newly-installed fun, interactive wall. See the journey of natural gas unfold in the augmented reality feature. Get to know what Phase 3 of the Malampaya Gas-to-Power Project is all about and learn some trivia on what makes it extra special as an engineering feat in the country. The redesigned exhibit will take up an expanded space of the “How Things Work” wing, located at the second level of The Mind Museum. Visitors are invited to download the free Journey to Malampaya app available via Google Play and iOS Store for a more fruitful learning experience.
The Malampaya Exhibit first opened to the public in March 2012. Its goal is to inform museum visitors of the process of gathering, transforming, and distributing natural gas, which is a less pollutive alternative resource to coal and oil. The project showcases the engineering feat conducted in the Malampaya project in Palawan to extract the 2.7 trillion cubic feet of natural gas in the area.
Visit the Malampaya Exhibit at The Mind Museum to know more about the innovative engineering feat that powers a good portion of the nation, and discover more about how human ingenuity harnesses natural gas to fuel our daily lives.
