Interactive Clock Exhibit Installation

For San Luis Obispo Children's Museum

In 2008, the Hind Foundation granted $55,000 to the San Luis Obispo Children's Museum to purchase and install an interactive Clock Exhibit. The exhibit is a kinetic sculpture with static and moving gears that allows children the opportunity to learn about the mechanisms of gears and gain an understanding how a pendulum works. The Museum is a three-story, 8,400 square foot center with 21 indoor and outdoor learning environments that stimulate curiosity and discovery through play.

Noteworthy Outcomes
•    Skill Building

The interactive clock exhibit engages the curiosity and encourages interaction amongst children, helping to form solid communication skills at a time when young children are very impressionable.
