The NIDO FORTIFIED Science Discovery Center (NFSDC), in partnership with Cartoon Network, launched its new hands-on and interactive exhibits that bring classroom lessons to life last September 25. Featuring school-themed activities, educational games, and informative booths children can enjoy, the new NIDO FORTIFIED Science Discovery Center showcases fun and excitement in a “classroom setting”.
In line with NFSDC’s aim to educate children in a fun and engaging way, the center has teamed up with Cartoon Network, the leading kids’ cable channel in the Philippines, to help jumpstart the entertainment at the launch. Apart from bringing along a slew of all-time favorite characters from hit series such as Ben 10, The Amazing World of Gumball, Adventure Time and many more at the launch, Cartoon Network is bringing the amazing world of toons to kids through a new interactive gallery called The Science of Cartoons—an exhibit that offers a colorful and informative journey through the world of animation.
Lucien Harrington, Vice President, Branding and Communications for Turner International Asia Pacific said, “Cartoon Network is Asia’s top destination for kids. Through this exhibition we hope to animate kids’ lives by inviting them to step into the shoes of an animator. With the support of the Nido Fortified Science Discovery Center, visitors will be inspired by the incredible artistry and technical skill that an animated series requires.”
The Nature Works gallery gives a peek into the word of plants and animals, where they grow, how important they are to life.

Crocodiles remain to be the most fascinating reptile that ever walked the earth. Often found lurking just below the surface of tropical marshes across the globe, crocodiles, with their ferocious bite and terrifying gaze, effortlessly strike fear in the hearts of many. The NIDO FORTIFIED Science Discovery Center houses a life-size replica of the largest crocodile in captivity 'Lolong' in an exhibit about crocodiles and their marshland habitat.
