The Year of Science

Created for the DƒEE,  this educational classroom demonstration ‘tool‘ was to become an element within the government’s Science Year initiative. The scheme was designed to help battle the declining interest in science amongst 11-13 year olds. The idea here was to do something at the heart of the audience, which was an opportunity to truly bring science home to the students by creating something very relevant to the 11-13 year olds who held and engaged with the intriguing and unusual-looking tactile cubes. Being able to literally hold the age-relevant science would be sure to help strengthen the students relationship with the subject: You grow a lot during early adolescence (of the aforementioned age range), at no other point in your life will you grow this much and this fast! This fact was brought to life in three cubes, each one feeling very different in texture, weight and density to the next.
