GET READY TO MOVE!
Animocation creates interactive, animated, educational movement-driven experiences which foster social, playful environments. They are ideal installations for zoos, aquariums, museums and any public space with an educational goal.
There are many benefits to making movement integral to an interactive, new media, learning experience. Moving enhances our physical health. It also enhances our learning. Studies show that when we move we improve circulation to our brains and we become better learners. In moving, we tap into our physical memory, which helps us with recollection and retention. When movement is part of a game, it fosters a social atmosphere. Incorporating animation to this movement/learning experience adds joy as well as clarity.

Toothy Tango RECENTLY INSTALLED... at Hands On! - A Children's Gallery
“Being a small children’s museum with a limited budget, we continuously struggle with affordable ways to implement change, without compromising in both the educational and fun value of new exhibits. We were searching for a new twist to our dental health area, and we were thrilled to find Animocation’s Toothy Tango as an option. Julia Griffey was incredible to work with, explaining every aspect of what should be done in order to best utilize the exhibit and our time, from preparing the area to installing the game. This addition to Hands On! has been welcomed by all, and it is a blast to watch people play!”
