Paragon worked with At Large Design and the team at Eureka!, The National Children’s Museum, to redevelop their hugely popular ‘All About Me’ gallery. The new 400sqm gallery is a highly immersive space that informs and educates children about their bodies, diet, health and wellbeing through hands-on interactive displays and role-play.
Paragon was principal contractor on the project and developed over 70 mechanical, sculptural and AV based interactive displays, as well as creating the whole immersive environment. A key addition to the Eureka! family is ‘Zoom the robot’, a fantastic new character that introduces and guides the children around the gallery. Paragon recreated this character in full 3D form and incorporated animated AV displays which allow the children to communicate and interact with the robot directly.
The project as a whole utilised the skills of all our departments and especially showcased our expanding Solid Surface Department, a material that lends itself fully to the museum and visitor centre environments due to its excellent durability, thermo-forming properties, safeness and cleanability. Eureka! has always been the industry benchmark for hands-on interactive education in the UK and we were excited to work on this important UK project.
