Exhibition Visit : Connected World

| 互動展覽探索:互連世界

展覽位於紐約皇后區的科學博物館 (NYSCI)

觀察 | First Glance

每輪參觀人數約為20–30人,一次15分鐘。參加者以10+歲小朋友居多(隨便觀察法),大人則大多在旁陪伴或正好坐在旁邊椅子上呵呵的看小朋友與奇怪的東西互動 (XD)。遊戲一開始會由解說員以問答方式解說操作方法與遊戲邏輯,例如:植物生長需要什麼?水..陽光…土…。

20–30 persons for every run, 15 mins for each play. Participants are 10+ years old kids (random observation). Most adults are resting by the playground but with giggling quirkily on the strange interactions by their kids. Before game starts, educator will explain the logic behind this game, e.g what resources do plants need? Is it sunlight, water or earth, etc?
