PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE)— Now that the kids are out of school for the summer, or will be soon, you may be looking for things to do to keep them entertained. The Providence Children’s Museum has just the thing, and it’s educational!

Within the ‘Story Center’ is a new interactive exhibit. The prototype is a photo booth of sorts. Little ones engage with a camera and projector. Using their body as a lens, they'll reveal a hidden collage and other fun silhouettes and images.

“Our goal was to create something that would engender empathy for kids, you know, that ability to see yourself in someone else's shoes. And it turned out this was the best way to do it,” said Caroline Payson, Executive Director of the museum.

“We've seen a lot of people using it. They always surprise us with using things in new and different ways and so it’s really been enjoyable to watch our audience explore this type of technology,” said Chris Sancomb, the exhibit designer.

The exhibit was developed in collaboration with local experience design agency, ‘Tellart’.
