TechniQuest is a wonderful place. Here are some pictures of past science exhibits and the enjoyment of learning that they have brought to so many. My visit to Techniquest was awesome, and I have some memories of it to share.

There is no doubt that informal learning is one of the best ways in which a person can learn while at the same time have some fun and adventure. That is why you will find people especially the youth frequenting educational centers such as museums, exhibitions, science & technological establishments etc. It is because it is both a time for learning as well as some time for recreation, fun & socializing.
Just fathom for a moment how great learning could be when you benefit from educational material without having to adhere to a pre-planned structure or stringent instructions, policies and rules from anyone but you are left free to adventure, have fun, socialize and at the end capture what you feel is the most essential and beneficial to you. Even if there are some rules which may apply the educational program which involves recreational learning and development will have no strict conventions as it is the case of formal education which is normally applied in educational institutions.
Thus at the end of the whole experience when you visit any informal learning center as is the case of museum or a center such as…… you end up with a renewed sense of enjoyment & fun, a modicum of social awareness, elevated confidence & motivation, increased personal qualities & skills and broadened scope & horizons as well as renewed energy levels as a result of good health. This is all because of the personal ability to assert some control & responsibility while learning which increases individual sensitivity and co-operation among other learners in your company.
