Sony ExploraScience, Odaiba

The Sony ExploraScience in Odaiba is an engaging and educational science and technology centre for kids eight years through teens for 1-2 hours. There are two large rooms on the 5th floor of the Mediage building in Odaiba that are filled with interactive displays that explain light and sound principals researched by SONY. It is hands-on fun with great explanations in English and Japanese.IMG_4838

All of the exhibits are interactive where by doing one will understand the basic principal of light, sound and movement. However, there are also in-depth explanations in English and Japanese. My son really enjoyed the ball game where you move to music and hit digital balls, the shadow game and the visual movement tracking exhibits. Also, a big hit was the voice pitch mapping exhibit which showed the visual adjustment to pitching. My son is not a huge science class lover, but he was engaged in this museum and asked a lot Sony Explore Scienceof questions after our visit. Don’t miss the smile contest right when you enter where your smile gets shot and then graded. My son got a top rank which filled him with delight the
rest of the visit. Although a small science centre it is a fun place to visit if you have a few hours. A great value at 300 yen for kids and 500 yen for adults.
