At ANOHA, there are many exploration stations. You can play at some of them alone, while other stations need more than one child to play. There’s something for everyone here. You are welcome to solve puzzles, climb, put things together, build things, balance, slide, stack things, make music, fix things…
Do you see the rainbow? God sent it as a sign for Noah and all people, a promise never to send a flood like this one again. It is the responsibility of all people to decide how to act, good or bad. What will you decide? Take a look at the rainbow’s seven questions. Write or draw your answer on a piece of paper to add some color to the rainbow.
Done building your ark? Then try it out on our 14-meter-long water testing basin. Not only can you see if your boat floats, you can also cause a little flood, add extra waves, make it rain, and dam up the water. Will your boat make it to safety on the mountain?
Noah’s Ark is ready and many animals want to get on board in time. Will you help them? The orangutan swings aboard the ship with its long, strong arms, taking a few other animals along on its lap. But the polar bear won’t make it alone. It needs a crane and several children to pull it inside. And you? Are you going to slide down the giraffe’s neck onto the ark?
Imagine there was a school on the Ark! Everyone learns from everyone here. Every animal has its own talent, and so does every person. Show us what you can do and teach the others something. What would you like to learn? The magical unicorn will let you use its enchanted blackboards for fantastic wishes.
At the circular center of our Ark, you are welcome to think about what we want life to be like after the Flood. Look through the Future-o-scope and get inspired by the pictures on the giant puzzle. We collect children’s ideas in our library of visions for the future. What does yours look like?
The flood has receded and the Ark has landed safely. On land, everything can be made anew. What works really well in our world today? What ideas and inventions should we take with us into the future? What can we do better? What do we want to rethink?
The ideas of twenty children from different grade schools in Berlin are displayed in an exhibition that they designed as ANOHA’s advisory council in 2019 – 20.
