Upon opening in 2019, Experimenta will be the largest science center in Germany. YiPP is handling 60 interactive exibits. (More info to follow soon)
In autumn 2016, we started feasibility studies and calculations for 2 floors in the brand new Experimenta building. In September 2017, after extensive preparation, we started batch delivering 63 interactive installations together with BRUNS. On average 8 exhibits of varying sizes needed to get approved each month. Just to get the job done in time.

Floor 1 in the building is all about materials. The gallery, called StoffWechsel, leads visitors through Hart, Ungreifbar, Leuchtend, Strukturiert and Lebendig. There's a whole lot to see, hear, feel and play.
From a crashed car to a wind tunnel, a water zone, ice sculptures, a speeddate with life and off to the all important question... When does a banana actually die?
Everything culminates into a grand, material avatar dance finale.
On floor 3, WeltBlick is all about becoming a world explorer. Visitors are guided through 5 zones Observe, Demonstrate, Model, Calculate, Simulate - each focusing on visitors acquiring different explorer tools. The whole gallery has an atelier vibe to it using friendly materials like cardboard and is lined by a gigantic construction, a low poly 'yellow snake'.
