The big challenge of this project was to show the basic phenomena ofscience in a simple and straightforward way. In traditional museums, suchcontent are usually shown in the table experiments, for experience of thephenomenon on an individual basis. In our case, this audience would bethousands of people every day. We would have to work with another scale.

 

We started with the idea that scientist and child explore the phenomena ofnature through experiments, but the child is playing. We developed a seriesof toys and equipment that used the principles of mechanics, optics, sound,astronomy and electricity. We did not use captions in the exhibition, onlysignposts of the phenomena.
This project was in roaming over two years by SESC units.
