Exactly 200 years ago a Danish scientist, Hans Christian Ørsted, discovered the connection between magnetism and electricity. The electric motor was born.

Celebrate Ørsted’s gift. Use small motors to shape light and perception, to make music (or at least clatter), to elevate rings on waves, to help small figures dance, draw, or parade.

All these experiments are designed to share and play well with others.
