Teamlab Kids Future Park: Art + Technology

 

September 17, 2017 - January 15, 2018

In collaboration with Teamlab Kids, Inc., Bowers Kidseum is excited to introduce an internationally traveling exhibit called Future Park: Art + Technology. In this unique digital playground, creativity abounds as children work and play together using technology, art, and their imaginations! Designed to inspire creative thinking, encourage collaborative play and build an interest in digital technology, this hands-on, digital exhibit features four different interactive areas for children to explore:

Sketch Town where students draw colorful pictures of cars, buses, buildings, and more to create an amazing virtual town bustling with activity. The town is projected on oversized exhibit walls from floor to ceiling and is reactive to the child's touch. The children's drawings can also be made into an original 3-D papercraft model that they can take home.

Light Ball Orchestra where students can play in an elaborate orchestra by rolling soft, oversized balls that are nearly as tall as they are! The giant orbs change sound and color when they touch and communicate with each other to play in concert.

Connecting! Block Town where students can use different brightly colored blocks on a table that becomes a large-scale screen, children create digital thoroughfares for cars, boats, trains, and planes! 

Hopscotch for Geniuses Hop to it! Featuring beautiful arwork, shapes and designs projected onto the floor, this interactive path reacts with sounds and colors as children use their entire bodies to play. The perfect activity for busy minds and bodies! 

Art classes: 2-D sketch to 3-D model, Paper City, or Paper Folding
