An Extremely Concise Guide to the Multi-Sensory Installations of Teknopolis





If a picture is worth a thousand words, an immersive, multi-sensory experience is worth quite a lot more. But that didn't stop us from asking Steven McIntosh, BAM's Director of Family Programs, and Teknopolis’ lead curator, to describe some of the exhibits at our immersive technology showcase … in 10 words or less.

It’s time … for the Teknopolis lightning round! Go Steven!
