Exposing young learners to science and chemistry is one of the goals of the Nelson Mandela Bay Science Centre. To this end, our science exhibit design team created the Virtual Chemistry Lab table with object recognition. It gives learners the opportunity to navigate digital content information by placing physical cards onto the table’s glass surface. Learners can learn through experimenting with chemicals reactions without any risks of real life burns!
Additionally, to help promote recycling and teach young people to separate waste, rather than an ordinary recycling exhibit our team of science exhibit developers created the interactive Floor Projection Recycling Game. A large interactive image is projected onto the floor of the Nelson Mandela Bay Science Centre and players use a real broom to sort several types of virtual waste into their correct waste containers.
