I just went to an amazing exhibit called the TIFF Kids digiPlaySpace at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto! Here are a few of the activities I got to test out.
This activity is called Water Light Graffiti. Can you imagine painting with water and lights? Well, that’s exactly what I got to do! The exhibit is made up of thousands of LEDs that shine brightly when you touch them with water. I could have ‘painted’ all day!
Head into the TIFF Kids Micro Makers’ Space to race robotic balls with a remote control! Here at Sphero Speedway, you can race these colour-changing balls around a virtual racetrack.
In this same space, you can find the Video Sans-Video Game (or video game without the video!) That’s right, no screen needed! For this game, players control a hand-made videogame using numbers to get through hand-drawn levels while avoiding obstacles and enemies to get to the finish.
If you’ve never seen a 3-D printer at work, you’ll definitely want to check out this station! This printer is fed information about an object from the computer. Once the info is received, the printer goes to work making the object. All of the little items you see on the table were made by this printer!
The TIFF Kids digiPlaySpace will run from March 8th to April 21st the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto. If you live in the area and are looking for something to do for March Break, be sure to check it out! You can get more details about the event by clicking HERE.
Bye for now!
