Co-presented with the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering, the interactive exhibition Rethinking - Learning from Nature aims to raise awareness of environmental themes by examining the past, showcasing the present, and offering a glimpse of the future. Focusing on the four elements fire, water, earth, and air, it presents surprising facts as well as positive and negative examples that create an emotional and informative access to the topic. Using interactive elements, this exhibition engages young students in particular and showcases what each of us can do to help protect our environment. Following an interdisciplinary approach and providing customized teaching material, the exhibition combines learning German with the subject of environmental protection.
