Fish Fins and Faces


The Challenge:

To design two interactive panels that engage children’s memory and hand-eye coordination without the use of computers.


The Result:

Notice the two panels entitled “What We Eat.” One shows a row of small, rectangular images of individual critters depicted in the water column above. The other “What We Eat” panel shows the same images, but each covered by a little drop-down door showing the animal that eats the critter underneath. This is a guessing game.

The other panel, “Fish Table Manners,” is accompanied by a set of turning boxes that, when properly lined up, show how each fish’s mouth, fin, and body type are shaped so the fish can thrive in a particular location in the water column and eat a specific kind of food. This game requires hand-eye coordination and sharp observation.
