We worked with Murphy Catton Woodworking to design displays for the East Kentucky Science Center’s Energee! exhibit and experience. The 12 exhibits allow kids of all ages to learn about energy. Using multi-media design and interactives, we designed real-world examples and immersive experiences. Working with a team of educators, we started by developing the lessons. Then, designed how to tailor the message to school-age children. Each display can be collapsed, allowing schools in the surrounding area to rent them. The design is so flexible, the whole exhibition can travel too.


This was a great chance for us to design a full, multi-media exhibit from the ground up. We developed the name, logo, multi-media design, exhibits, graphic style, and the interactive, hands-on displays. The result is a dynamic, flexible tool to teach kids and adults about different types of energy. Visitors explore how they experience energy in their daily lives and what choices we can make to best apply our resources.
