Woman creates tiny portable micro-museums

Amanda Schochet created MICRO, a fleet of six foot tall museums that can go anywhere: the DMV, an office lobby, a classroom, wherever.

By shrinking an entire museum into a 6 foot tall modular design, MICRO hopes that these tiny exhibits can go in all sorts of public areas, like shopping malls, waiting rooms, airports, and parks where they can integrate science and learning into people's day-to-day lives.

The stuff way down low for young people is great, but things in the upper reaches might be a bit tough to see and touch for them. Conversely, older people might miss the parts that require kneeling or bending way down. It would be neat if they experimented with different heights and shapes.
