ABOUT US

We believe that by encouraging the intersection between technology, art and design we can help create innovative, effective, and sustainable solutions for education and social change. We support creative contexts that bring together artists and scientists, designers, architects, engineers and entrepreneurs in new forms of dialogue.

 

We constantly look at designing experiences and exhibits for tomorrow’s world of knowledge. Therefore we are crazy passionate about developing new types of Science Centers and STEAM engagement platforms.

 

Reflexive Engagement? How to give rise to new thought processes? How to nurture creative and critical thinking about the way that new developments are shaping our society? What are the skills required in order to make the public voices really count? What are the future interfaces of formal and informal learning?

 

We are curious and inqusitive. Interested in novel ways that bring people closer to scientific knowledge, encouraging conversations and the ability to think differently. 

 

We never settle. We want to engage, excite, and craft inspired experiences. We’re always on the search for unconventional methodologies or collaborations in order to develop new forms for science communication and stage complex contents.
