Grade 2s visit 'Future Park'

The Grade 2s took some time outside the calssroom and visted the teamLab 'Future Park' at Silverstar Casino on Monday morning. It proved to be a lot of fun and the pupils spent lots of time epxeriencing all the different activities on offer. Some of the attractions included the following:

Sketch Aquarium

Children colour in a drawing of a sea creature & the piece of paper is scanned and the image projected onto a giant virtual aquarium. Kids will be able to see their creation come to life and swim with the other sea creatures!

A Table Where Little People Live

In this installation, little people run around an interactive tabletop screen around which children sit or stand. They’re encouraged to interact with the little people by placing objects on the table. As each object is introduced, the movements of the little people change – they interact with the objects by jumping, climbing and sliding onto them.

 Connecting! Block Town

Here cars and trains run along digitally projected roads and railroad tracks that are connected by physical wooden blocks. As children place different blocks on the table, more cars and trains appear to form a townscape!

 Sketch Town Papercraft

Pictures drawn in Sketch Town can be turned into unique 3-D papercrafts that children can take home. The process of creating 3-D objects helps children to understand spatial perspective.

 

Light-ball Orchestra

Rolling a light ball changes its colour and sound. Combined, the light balls form an orchestra. The overhead ball communicates with the other balls – touch it and the surrounding balls are affected, changing the colour of the entire space!

 Hopscotch for Geniuses

For this game circles, triangles and squares are projected onto the floor. When children expertly land on the shapes, they trigger sounds and colours. Landing on the same shapes or colours in succession creates ever more beautiful colours and sounds!
