Appeal to the imagination

Been working on a proposal today for my good friend Eveline, who is starting a Young Innovators Club under the aegis of Museon, a museum that targets kids and tries to interest them in natural phenomena.

From the Museon site: The early twentieth century saw a change in the Dutch schooling system. Educational innovators such as Jan Ligthart proved that illustrative education and self-motivation promotes the transfer of knowledge. Pupils are inspired and eager to learn more if they can test in practice the theory they are being taught, using objects that appeal to the imagination.
