Palms, MSI gear for children on scientific summer

The Palms, a premier western styled shopping mall in collaboration with Mad Science Incorporated (MSI), has concluded plans to take children for a summer ride in Lagos with free mix of educative and entertaining scientific displays and inventions.

A press statement from The Palms, informed Champion Infotel that from August 1st to 14th, children would gather in The Palms’ foyer for an amazing “Fire and Ice” show.

It was also gathered that plans have been advanced to ensure participating children are dazed as they watch objects levitate in mid air.

The children are equally expected to learn all about Bernoulli’s principle of aerodynamics through these interactive experiments, even as they will be having some fun alongside.

The organisers said that the event has been structured to enable them touch, feel and taste what science is really all about.

“They will build rockets, make indoor lightning, learn why airplanes fly and volcanoes erupt and so much more,” the statement from The Palms read.
