    Exposing young learners to science and chemistry is one of the goals of the Nelson Mandela Bay Science Centre. To this end, we designed a Virtual Chemistry Lab Table that gives learners the opportunity to navigate digital content information by placing physical cards onto the projection table’s glass surface. Learners can learn through experimenting with chemicals reactions without any risks of real life burns!

    Rather than an ordinary recycling exhibit, to help promote recycling and teach young people to separate waste, our team of exhibit developers created the Recycling Floor Projection 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 different types of virtual waste into their correct waste containers.
    It is also important to empower the youth to tackle difficult real world decisions with confidence and so we created the Life Choices game. Embedded in a multi-player touch table, the game presents players with animated scenarios and personal choices affecting their lives. Players must navigate through ‘life’, making choices that change the outcome of each stage along the way. They are confronted with possible consequences of their decisions throughout the game. Depending on the choices made by players, the game projects different possible outcomes in the future.
