Atrium Water Interactive


Client: Arizona Science Center

Location: Phoenix, Arizona

Installed: February 2012

Anchoring the outdoor exhibit space, the 16’ tall central tower with a rotating auger sends balls cascading down through a labyrinth of track, a rotating plinko board, and water wheels. Four satellite water stations, which are equipped with their own unique water and ball interactives, spread the action throughout the entire courtyard. Laminar jets with fiber optic lighting transport and illuminate balls to mesmerize the visitors. Music is created at an adjacent station by manipulating water jets that spray cymbals and drums. Overhead, balls are launched by hand crank air pressure cannons and sent zipping along the stainless tracks to other satellite stations. It’s a mind-blowing stimulation of all senses!
