interactive exhibit

Through a series of gamified challenges, this exhibit combines the power of hands-on learning and engaging digital content to take learning environments to the next level. Focused on making connections, players use custom-made “tinker toys,” representing simple atoms and bonds, to build a series of molecules. Each challenge builds upon the last, with players learning how the molecules they’ve created combine to form air pollution and other gasses around us. Using tactile interaction and digestible facts, Formation Station makes chemistry tangible and fun for children and adults. 

FORMATION STATION is a tactile STEM game that teaches the foundations of chemistry through touch and play. The game is perfectly suited for science centers, museums, visitor centers and schools.
