Metabolight Science Fair exhibit and video

As part of the MetaboLight project, we designed and built a portable, interactive display unit for the team to use at science festivals throughout the UK.

Our exhibit includes an integrated demonstration space with interchangeable elements for information and animations, area to display the interactive pieces relative to that particular festival, and a tall, internally lit beacon situated above the display to attract visitors.

We launched the exhibit and video with the MetaboLight team at UCL on 12 July 2017.

The exhibit has appeared at Norwich Science Festival (2017), The Big Bang Fair in Birmingham (2018) and The Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition (2019)

The interactive exhibit is being displayed at a series of science festivals between 2017–2019. It includes an integrated demonstration space with interchangeable elements for information and animations, area to display interactive equipment, and a tall, internally lit beacon situated above the display to draw attention.

Our cost effective solution for the portable exhibit involved customising £5 Ikea Lack side tables. It was featured on Ikea Hackers.

MetaboLight has also exhibited at the Big Bang Fair (2018). Our film was on display along with a number of interactive demonstrations on which we consulted.

We also designed and animated a video after the Big Bang Fair to promote Metabolight’s engagement with the public.

We also designed the Metabolight magazine and website.
