What makes an interactive exhibit
Through my years of experience of developing interactive exhibits also outside the field of science communications I have come to define interactive exhibits as objects meeting three criteria:
1. An object that is meant to be explored with our senses.
I would not call my kitchen stove an interactive exhibit – even though it tells lots of stories and gives great feedback but it can easily turned into one when put in the context of a trade show or a museum.
My experience is your benefit
Looking at the wide field where interactive exhibits do appear, you can benefit from my experience in all of them. During the last 15 years I have conceptualized, designed and developed more than 100 interactive exhibits. Many of them were designed to communicate complex technical coherences in the automobile industry but also making several scientific topics accessible to the public.

Despite that I also offer concept and design services I can support you and your team with the following:
