Future Park: Art + Technology is a unique digital playground allowing children to 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: draw colorful pictures of cars, buses, buildings and more to create an amazing virtual town projected on oversized exhibit walls from floor to ceiling that are reactive to touch.
- Light Ball Orchestra: play in an elaborate orchestra by rolling soft, oversized balls that change sound and color when they touch and communicate with each other to play in concert.
- Connecting! Train Block: use different brightly colored blocks on a table that become a large-scale screen to create digital thoroughfares for cars, boats, trains and planes!
- Hopscotch for Geniuses: work together to create digital hopscotch courses on a floor with colorful art and patterns.
The exhibit is open Tuesday – Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mondays during the summer from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.
