  • Abstract
  • Most interactive informal learning approaches use different technologies to focus on a specific knowledge domain from school curriculum for children. Others attempt to develop children¿s skills: social, cognitive, physical, etc. We propose that interaction has also great potential to enhance learning of abstract concepts, such as how science and knowledge are structured, by designing specific user attitudes in the interactive experience. In this paper we describe the steps followed in the conceptual design and interaction design of an interactive museum installation for children 14 to 18 years old. We explore how to extend informal learning towards learning abstract concepts trough interaction
