Outdoor installations for Science Centers

Are you looking for outdoor science installations? Or would you like to give explanation about existing outdoor installations in a fun way?  Eduplaying produces interactive science installations for outdoors. All our installations are 'human powered'; the user generates electricity himself, no need for external electricity!

How do you create an inspiring educational outdoor science environment?

Imagine your visitors playing in and on a Planetarium!

Look at your science center. Most centers create interesting environments indoors to stimulate the visitors. Kids get inspired by models of atoms,  solar system simulators etc.

But how do you create an inspiring outdoor science environment? How do you inspire kids to explore and play with physics, astronomy or electrics outdoors? Imagine a playground with interesting, interactive installations which stimulate kids to explore, play and learn!
