We introduce the concept of Interactive Learning Stations to bring informal education in science through interactive art. Each interactive learning station can be placed in locations accessible to the public, allowing people to engage with interactive art and informally learn scientific concepts through the conversation between visitor, artwork, and its scientific backbone. We deviate from the traditional museum setting of informal learning, instead bringing interactive art to teach science where there is a public and communicate it in a multisensory fashion that could easily be replicated in virtually any space.
