In the WOODlab visitors can get, in a contemporary and interactive way, acquainted with all aspects of wood. This ranges from sustainable building material that helps stabilize the climate to microscopic secrets that explain the properties of wood.
By visting the WOODlab, Botanical Garden Meise wants to fascinate people for the great ‘invention’ of nature that wood is. Wood is the most common product of living nature. It lives, it grows, it breathes, it adapts and it dies.
Bruns has created in the WOODlab about 4 interactive modules. Module 1 is an exhibit, mounted at the table, where four graphic panels shows the annual rings of a tree. Module 2 is an exhibit in which one learn more about the appearance of the different types of wood. Module 3 is an exhibit based on a electro game, in which the visitor must link different types of wood with the correct application. Module 4 is an exhibit with which the amount of moisture in wood can be demonstrated.
