Toy Tech gives the unique opportunity to bring National Museum of Science and Technology to other parts of the country. Toy Tec includes an exhibition of toys from all over the world and a workshop (a Makerspace) in which visitors can build and test toys that they can then take home with them.
Toy Tec 2.0 invites to learning about technology and physics along with how to use tools and various kinds of material, in which way. Other features include a wind tunnel in which visitors can test the aircraft they make, a whole new launching pad for paper rockets, and a track where visitors can try out the Art bots they make. The new version also includes the option to add more activities of your own, including robot construction, programming and music, and experimenting with electricity and clay.
Toy Tech is suitable for museums and science centres, libraries and shopping malls for example. The target groups for this exhibition are primarily families with children, school classes and teachers.
Toy Tech 2.0 consists of:
- A cavalcade of over 50 of the world’s most popular toys, supplemented with the most popular Swedish toys.
- How do toys work? Visitors get the opportunity to investigate what a variety of well-known toys look like on the inside via cut-through samples.
