There were hundreds of hands-on activities and interactive experiences for kids (young and old).
The latest exhibition was centred around “Making and Tinkering”. You could make your own stop motion animation, while lying on the floor. You could make a paper cup rocket and shoot it 10m into the sky with a high powered fan. There was an interactive sandpit that projected colours onto your sandhills. There were pots and pan drums, igloo making blocks, ping pong ball obstacle courses… it was soooo much fun!
However it was THIS exhibit that caught our attention.
It was a heat sensor display, projected onto a big screen. We were being silly, trying to work out who was hotter between us.
We noticed that while I (on the right) was hotter overall (ahem!), Beverly (on the left) had this very distinct hot spot in her crotch! What was that all about? Zipper? Button? Piercing? G- Spot?
And then we noticed that MY whole crotch area was lit up? Glowing hot! What the? And why was my whole tummy all hot? Why didn’t I have a distinct hotspot too?
We examined and poked at our “hot spots”, trying to make ourselves hotter and cooler. Lifting our tops and showing off our bare skin to see if that made a difference, giggling, cackling and snorting with laughter.
Until we suddenly became self-aware – turned around slowly – and saw that everyone was watching us behave like drunk girls in a bathroom mirror.
A bit embarrassing!
