Kids at the controls
of their own future
The future is much more fun when you’re the one creating it. That’s the idea behind the new exhibition on sustainability at the University Museum Utrecht. Tinker developed a playful workspace where kids can collect building blocks and build their own world of tomorrow. Will they choose local products or opt for the exotic variety? Are they living in the city or in the country?
They compose their own reality at building stations. Thanks to scientific research, subtly woven into the building blocks, their world naturally becomes greener and cleaner than ours. Once they've gone through all kinds of decisions on how to design their lives, they will see the consequences of the world they created: an entire, self-made future. Reset? While there’s still time!
Exhibition runs till half 2012.
