Information Age

InfoAge+ is an exciting new app, featuring four creative challenges that will help you get more from your visit to the Science Museum’s amazing Information Age gallery.

Information Age: Six Networks That Changed Our World is the Museum’s biggest and most ambitious gallery to date and features over 800 objects from our world-class collections, many of which have never been on public display. It reveals personal stories about how our lives have been transformed by communication innovations over the last two centuries.

InfoAge+ will enhance the museum experience for 11 to 14–year–olds by setting them fun tasks to do in the gallery. These are:

  • Top tech: choose an object, create a card and use it to do battle with objects from the gallery.
  • After dark: what if the objects came to life after the Museum closes? Imagine conversations between the objects by filling in the blanks in a comic strip.
  • Newsflash: you need to find a news story in the gallery that will please your demanding editor and create a video report about it.
  • My timeline: put yourself into a 200-year-plus timeline of incredible stories and add your own objects.

Complete the activities and beat the Museum to win achievements.

All four activities produce a video or picture which will be saved to the camera roll of the phone or tablet used. These can all be kept to view again back at home or in the classroom.

This app is available on iPhone, iPad and Android.
