'Connected Worlds' is a new museum exhibit that is designed to encourage visitor interaction. For many children, museums provide a passive learning experience. This immersive waterfall installation is designed specifically for those who learn best by doing rather than seeing.

Connected Worlds was developed by 'Design I/O' as a means of encouraging visitor interaction at the New York Hall of Science. The installation consists of six different ecosystems, which are spread out along the museum walls. Each ecosystem is connected by an interactive floor and a virtual waterfall that towers above. The waterfall gives children an opportunity to learn about the plants and animals in each ecosystem through a series of interactive activities. The goal of the exhibit is to encourage children to take an interest in science and environmentalism.

The immersive waterfall installation is designed to interest adults as well by providing information about sustainability and the importance of preserving our ecosystems.
