In 2018 Story Inc was selected by Science Centre Singapore to create an exhibition to elevate the work of engineers and promote engineering as a career pathway for young Singaporeans. We partnered with Studio Cassells on this project to create a concept titled, Future Makers. The exhibition opened in June 2019.
The main attraction of the exhibition is a Robot Object Theatre, the home of four robotic arms, each with their own distinct personality. Through videos and synchronised movement, the four screen-holding robots work together to explain the history and scope of engineering.
There is also a Done-Rover Driving Arena where guests, assisted by docents, can learn to pilot drones and navigate Mars-Rover vehicles through a specially created indoor-outdoor space with a challenging landscape.
In the main exhibition area, visitors learn about the engineering challenges behind the invention of mega structures, rockets, medicines, foods and fashion. Guests can complete challenge interactives at each station and collect codes which allow them to partake in the final stage of the exhibition - the alien themed Escape Room experience.
Inside the escape room, guests have 20 minutes to use engineering concepts to repair and re-activate a crashed spacecraft in order to prevent an impending alien invasion.
