What's on

Tinkering Space: Future Shelters

How will the houses of tomorrow look? What will they be built from to protect our future lifestyles? Now's the time to find answers to these challenges.

You have reached the main content region of the page.

Test your prototyping skills as you twist, weave and join modelling balloons together to collaboratively create a large-scale temporary shelter. Using the innovation cycle of Need, Think, Make, Try and Refine, think about how balloons can best be utilised in the prototype shelter, and consider what materials we should use to make our homes in the future.

All balloons used this activity are made from 100% natural latex and are Rainforest Alliance Certified.
