Go down the rabbit hole with Wondermind
Wondermind is a suite of interactivities about art and neuroscience that includes games, interactive films and opportunities for discussion and debate. Aimed at 8-12s who may not normally engage with biomedical science, the project introduces key neuroscience concepts in brain development, illustrating them with works from the Tate collection and images inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland.
Wondermind was funded by the Wellcome Trust, the games developed by Preloaded, interactive films by Martin Percy and the science content by Dr. Michelle de Haan from UCL, with a large number of teams at Tate being involved to get the project live.
The demonstation will showcase the Wondermind experience and I will talk about its production and development, with specific emphasis on creating content that is engaging for children, while presenting complex information and themes.
