Explore the Uncharted is a modular exhibit designed to challenge the creative problem solving skills of student participants. Student teams were asked to design remote-controlled prototypes to collect items on a three-dimensional landscape. Their success was gauged based on the number of red objects they could collect within the time limit.
Explore the Uncharted was developed to inspire children to question what's possible, and use their imagination to change the world. Our most influential discoveries, our most celebrated achievements, and our greatest artistic triumphs all stem from a desire to explore.
The exhibit was showcased in May 2011 at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Approximately 120 teams-roughly 600 students-participated in Explore the Uncharted over three days, and more than 16,000 people saw the exhibit.
Explore the Uncharted was created by Destination ImagiNation (DI). DI is a non-profit organization that provides educational programs for students to learn and experience creativity, teamwork and problem solving.
