Where do you get your inspiration and do you inspire others? You will soon find out as you open up your thinking, reflect on what you learn and create something new with Imaginate – a muliti-activity exhibition that introduces you to the skills and attitudes that are part of the process of innovation.
Imaginate explores five broad themes each representing a possible pathway to innovation. Below are examples of activties found within each theme.
- So You Think You Can Fly: As a child did you ever just want to fly? Put on a pair on wings, flap your arms and compare your flapping rate to different birds. Step on our scale and see what your wingspan would need to be for you to be able to fly.
Expect the Unexpected
- Materials Playground: Have you ever looked at something ordinary and thought of a way to make it extraordinary? Test out various properties of materials in this materials playground and see how nature has directly inspired many inventions.
Collaborate or Compete
- Sound Panels: Is it just noise or is it “music”? In this large room of sound and lights, you can create a musical masterpiece involving rhythm, light, pattern and emotion. Collaboration with others lets you work with each other’s sounds.
Try, Try and Try Again
- Friction Zone: Many good innovations come from an understanding of the properties of the materials being used. By experimenting with the surface properties of a range of materials, you can discover which combinations yield the fastest or slowest run.
Look to the World
- 3D Evolution: The evolution of 3D is filled with examples of innovative behavior – from stereoscopes to 3D glasses to 3D screens that can be viewed without glasses. Learn how the brain perceives 3D and experience some illusions that take spectacular advantage of this science.- www.pacificsciencecenter.org
