CREATE YOUR OWN OCEAN WORLD
At the Sketch Aquarium at Future Park you can have a hand in making the type of underwater wonderland you’d like to see!
WOULD you like to create your own species of fish and other sea creatures and watch them come to life? You can – at Sketch Aquarium, one of the exciting activities at Future Park, the exhibition now on at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town and brought to you by DRUM and its sister magazines, Huisgenoot and YOU.
Sketch Aquarium features a massive virtual tank where fish and other sea creatures that visitors colour in come to life. The animals react to human touch and one another, and tapping on the virtual bag of food will have them coming in closer to feed.
Sketch Aquarium is brought to you by Eau Thermale Avène, the No 1 suncare brand in Europe.
When you arrive at Future Park you’ll receive three colouring-in pictures to use at the Sketch Aquarium.
Step 1 Choose a sea creature from your colouring-in pictures and colour it in.
Step 2 Have it scanned.
Step 3 Watch it swim around in the virtual aquarium, interacting with other fish. Touch it to see it react, or tap on the virtual bag of food to see it having a bite.
This activity boosts creative and expressive skills, instils respect for diversity and promotes an interest in technology.
If you run out of sea creatures to colour in, additional packs of three colouring-in pictures are available at R10 each.
