Cap Sciences 10 October 2017

What is light? How does it influence our daily life? How do we share it? Luminipolis explores the nature of light with a twist. Based on the concept of escape games, it invites visitors, as part of a team or as individual, to learn more about the science of light by solving riddles and collecting clues. But time is off the essence in this experience and visitors only have a set amount of time in order to collect the right answers and unlock the exit door of Luminopolis.  

HNF Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum GmbH 10 October 2017

This exhibition at the Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum explores the work of the Canadian artist Todd McLellan who has a passion for taking apart everyday technical objects, ordering them and photographing them. The photos created as a result of this process are art works that impress the viewer with their soberness and their austere simplicity. Enhanced by objects from the NHF, the 34 photos on show are being displayed for the first time in Europe.

Hüttinger Interactive Exhibitions 27 September 2017

In January 2017 we have been awarded the contract to conceptualize, design and build Точка гравитации (lit. Point of Gravitation). Covering a floorspace of 600 sqm the Children‘s Science Museum is a dynamic learning space where children, families, and groups can create, innovate, collaborate, problemsolve, and invent. Through hands-on activities, they learn about: Mechanics, Mathematics, Magnetism, Optics & Light and Flow. Most importantly, they are empowered to construct their own knowledge and to solve problems in their own unique ways.

Hüttinger Interactive Exhibitions 27 September 2017

In October 2016, we were commissioned to conceptualize, design and build a new play area for the Monde des Enfants (lit. Children’s World). This new site called La Rivière en chantier (lit. River under construction) opened its doors in July 2017, enabling young visitors to play at being archaeologists or construction workers or simply to splash around in the two watercourses.

Are you a natural talent?

At Technopolis young visitors have the opportunity find out which profession(s) would suit them through a set of interactive exhibits. These exhibits are part of Xplora, an entire area dedicated to professions that are meant to capture the attention of 8 to 14 year olds who are bound to make decisions that will greatly influence their future careers.

Pitch and Play

Mid 2017 Technopolis launched the online school competition Pitch and Play. Third grade teachers and students get the opportunity to build a new interactive exhibit that will ultimately be installed at Technopolis. The concept is entirely new in the Flemish education field, as the competition is based on an online gamification platform simulating a virtual entrepreneur environment. This way Technopolis endeavours to create an online community that co-creates the science centre’s future.
