Abstract

Today's Science Centers offer a variety of intriguing exhibits to their visitors. The exhibits enable visitors to experience science first hand by actively manipulating the experiments, thus delivering natural ways of active playful learning. Modern technologies like Mixed Reality are often used to enrich the experience and display otherwise hidden phenomena. The Science Center TOGO approach goes one step further and aims to bring similar comprehensive learning experiences out of the Science Center into everyone's home. Our miniature exhibits - by "fitting into a pocket"- enable users to experiment whenever and wherever they please. This way we are making full use of the powerful capabilities offered by tailor-made exhibits combined with Mixed Reality. In this paper we will present our concept, the first prototype and take a look at the potential of a Science Center TOGO.
