Project Opening: The Neural Climber

The Neural Climber, part of the Your Brain exhibit at The Franklin Institute, opened summer 2014. It allowed us the opportunity to create a fully immersive environment where children climb through “neural pathways” to learn about the brain. How the light plays on the netting and translucent glass discs is crucial to the experience — as children pretend to climb through a brain, their own brains are responding to the changing sensory stimuli. The lighting changes the glass plates from translucent to opaque as children climb through. The Neural Climber has been reviewed as one of the highlights of The Franklin Institute’s new exhibit.
