Science centre’s use interactive exhibits to make science and technology understandable for young and old. Visitors connect with the subject matter in a playful way and use their interest to discover new phenomena. The motto of a science centre is: Hands On! Or forbidden to stay off. Discovering, experiencing and recognizing the world around yourself provides an educational experience that people will long remember. Visitors are inspired by seeing, hearing, smelling and feeling applications of social issues. An environment filled with excitement and sensation will introduce visitors of all ages to the world of physics. To some visitors, these are the first steps into an unknown territory. To others they are a meaningful experience that provides more insight.
Bruns realized the Evoluon in Eindhoven, one of the first science centres in the Netherlands. It was opened in 1966 on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of Philips. As a specialist in technical working models, Bruns was commissioned to realize this educational technology museum. A huge challenge, but it turned out that we had the perfect organization to realize the Evoluon. In the following years we expanded our portfolio and developed science centres around the world.

The first interactive exhibits in science centres dealt with physical phenomena. The content of exhibits has now further developed to all aspects within STEM. As a result, exhibits often have a high technical character. STEM stands for: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. We realize high-quality technical exhibits. During the development and production phase we use the integrality between our various technical disciplines. We ensure that exhibits, including those on astronomy, energy or robotics, are perfect pieces of engineering. We also make sure that they are of very high quality. This will guarantee their continuity and intensive use by visitors every day.
