Project Overview

Marbles Kids Museum worked with Kraemer Design and Production to design Kid Grid, a play-based exhibit introducing children to the Smart Grid. Funded by ABB, the exhibit engages children in power distribution in playful ways, inspiring interest in the role of electricity in our everyday lives. Pacific Studio worked closely with museum staff and the design team to prototype a series of complex interactives that put energy generation into the hands of visitors. Guests can play the role of a lineman in the 14’ tall climber and lineman’s lift, generating energy and running the high-tech distribution center.
