I brought my youngest son with me to The Future City event last Sept. 6th coz I know he will not only love the digital park but also enjoy socializing with other kids. A part of his homeschooling journey is to see me in action while I do my blogging work and learn from the different stations inside as well.
It was an extraordinary learning experience for my son as he went through those one-of-a-kind interactive installations. Future City uses technologies from all over the globe. The park contains 6 unique and engaging stations that will give guests the chance to participate in one-of-a-kind experiences that will surely nurture the minds of the kids and kids at heart.
Upon entering, you will see a sort of starlit “Future Dome”, much like looking at the stars at night. It’s where we were given a glimpse of the technological advances that will soon define future cities — from towering smart skyscrapers, solar powered walls, interactive cityscapes, and autonomous vehicles. Then, we proceeded to the Sketch Village. Children were encouraged to choose an image they would like to portray when they grow up and colored them. After which, it was scanned and appeared in the big monitor as pictured below.
Next stations were the interactive walls and floors featuring digital games. On the wall was the “Block the Junk” where in you have to throw a soft pillow block on the unhealthy food. The one on the floor was the “Stomp the Scrap”, basically you have to stomp on the fries, burgers, doughnuts, and candies, which are also junk food.
Then we went to this checkpoint where you can assess your future health and the diseases you can possibly pass on to your child. A big point of apprehension about the future, especially for parents, is their child’s health. Family history plays a big part in determining what diseases and conditions will be inherited by their kids and educating yourself about what can be done to prevent these from being passed on is the key to ensuring your child’s better future health. To that end, the Family Health Screener can help parents assess these possibilities, which will also be unveiled at the pop-up interactive digital park.
The next station, we were ushered into a room that highlights an interactive wall demonstrating the evolution of science for nutrition and development, and how scientific advances have helped secure a child’s healthy future.
All in all, the Future City is a fitting fusion of interactive material and abstract concepts demonstrated in a visual and engaging way for kids and the kids at heart to appreciate and enjoy.
The interactive nature of The Future City is central to the entire exhibit’s message, not just in terms of technology and infrastructure, but for bigger and far more essential choices for your child’s health and development. Exploring the science behind the different elements that drive our lives—the environment we move in, the things we eat, the activities we do—it helps us understand just how relevant all these our to securing a brighter, safer, healthier future for generations to come.
