The exhibition Let's give the numbers! - A 3D journey through Fingers, Dice and Data: a fascinating interactive exhibition to discover the world of mathematics and numbers through games and stories. Figures, data, averages, errors, surveys, risk assessments: today we are called to deal more and more with the numbers and even if we can delegate these concerns to others, learning to use and understand the numbers helps us to orient ourselves in the world and take conscious decisions.

Hüttinger Interactive Exhibitions 1 December 2021

After our work for the Cell Lab back in 2005 we were commissioned with its redesign, renovation and remanufacturing in October 2020. As far as possible, old parts and exhibits were reused in the new furniture. The Cell Lab allows the handling of real laboratory equipment and gives an insight into the work of a modern laboratory - it was reopened to the public in mid-November 2021.

Achievements in science and art start with the same spark: wonder. When the AAHOM asked a team of Toyota staff what led them to become an engineer, scientist or researcher, each pointed to a moment of childhood wonder as the spark of curiosity that blossomed into a career. These same catalysts to innovation now have a new place to work their magic at AAHOM.
