This year for its holiday program Experyment Science Center focuses on space travel and flying. We were asked to design a poster which would combine this theme with play and experiments. When we told them what we wanted to do, we were given three boxes of fun stuff: science toys, microscope parts, lab equipment, a model of the solar system. We also raided our son’s room for toys and then constructed a rocket of all those bits and pieces we chose.
Projects like this are awesome for reminding us that design is more than being stuck to the computer screen and can be fun in more than one way.
The flashlights-as-rocket-engines might be our favorite part.
