ONE DROP’s AQUA experience was recently featured as part of [the French] CBC’s televised game show Génies en Herbe. During one episode, which aired on the French television network Radio-Canada on March 5th, cameras followed two teams of four adolescent geniuses to the Museum of Civilization in Quebec City. The teams eventually ended up within AQUA. Afterwards, when asked what they thought of AQUA, contestants shared their awe of the experience and the importance of water in our world.
“AQUA’s interactive experience, which uses various art forms to sensitize people to water issues while making them aware of the role they can play in finding a solution, is why we feel it coincides perfectly with the museum’s own educational mission,” explains museum CEO Michel Côté. Participants learn even more about the challenges facing our planet’s precious resource when they engage in workshops adjacent to AQUA. In its first six months at Quebec City’s Museum of Civilization, nearly 24,000 people had stepped into the AQUA experience, including adults, children and student groups. AQUA is in Quebec City until April 10, 2011, after which it will be heading to the southern hemisphere, at New Zealand’s Auckland Museum!
Since its inception, AQUA—a multi-sensory touring experience by ONE DROP—has educated, entertained and inspired some 200,000 people in three Canadian cities.
