Santa Ana – The future looks bright! In collaboration with Team Lab 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:
Paint the town red or blue or green! Children 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
The Light Ball Orchestra is music to your ears and eyes! Children 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
All roads lead to fun and adventure! Using different brightly colored blocks on a table that becomes a large-scale screen, children create digital thoroughfares for cars, boats, trains and planes! Soon, the city landscape comes alive as children team up to create working roads and railways crisscrossing each other as vehicles make their way.
Hopscotch for Geniuses
Hop to it! Featuring beautiful artwork, 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!
