The Chabot Space & Science Center in Oakland, California created an exhibit about climate change, teamed with the science-personality Bill Nye. Aimed at a middle-school audience, the graphic approach evokes a student’s lab notebook or science fair exhibit, with pasted-on photos and diagrams, paper collage elements, and hand-written notes and doodles.
A series of icons representing clean energy solutions were hidden throughout the exhibits for visitors to discover as they solve puzzles or gather information.
3D elements incorporated unfinished wood, visible nuts-and-bolts construction, and recycled materials.
