Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre launch

Taupo Times - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Mind Junc­tion are set to launch their new Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre.

For the past 10 years, Mind Junc­tion has been pro­vid­ing Taupo’s vis­i­tors a fun and en­ter­tain­ing en­vi­ron­ment to en­joy fun, fam­ily friendly at­trac­tions like New Zealand’s only pub­lic LEGO dis­play, Gi­ant Maze, Mini Golf, a Shoot­ing and Fly­ing sim­u­la­tor plus model boats and trains.

Now, they are ready to launch their lat­est in­vest­ment - the Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre.

The new Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre aims to help young peo­ple learn about science through fun in­stal­la­tions and will open on the June 9 at 5:30pm.

Co-owner and Co-Founder of Mind Junc­tion, Trish May­hill said the Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre will al­low young peo­ple in Taupo to ex­pe­ri­ence some of the science they learn about in school in a fun, hands-on, in­ter­ac­tive way.

‘‘We hope it ex­cites young peo­ple about science while also pro­vid­ing an en­ter­tain­ing day out for adults,’’ she said.

There are 12 dif­fer­ent zones for vis­i­tors to en­gage with and test them­selves and their friends on.

These in­clude dis­plays on space, the hu­man body, the mak­ing of Earth, elec­tric­ity & mag­netism and vis­ual il­lu­sions.

Hus­band and wife own­ers, Trish and Jeff, have spent the past three years de­sign­ing and build­ing the new Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre, with most of the work and con­struc­tion be­ing done by the cou­ple and their two chil­dren.

Mind Junc­tion would like to wel­come any and all lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions to join Trish and Jeff on the open­ing night of the Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre and ex­pe­ri­ence Taupo’s new­est at­trac­tion.
