The explainer station would let visitors explore the extensive exhibit wall comprising 400+ items ranging from stones, minerals and fossils to insects, birds and taxidermy of mammals. To do so you could either check individual items on the wall or compare them by various shared attributes like age, population or geographic distribution.
While the explainer station was targeting a general audience, the game station was specifically designed for a young audience. The map was divided into different environments like grassland, forest, desert, mountain or sea. Following up on questions like "Find birds of prey!" or "Find nocturnal animals!" the children had to think of the areas where they would suspect matching animals to live and explore these regions with their flying drone. Once an animal was discovered they had to check if it was matching the criteria or not.
