Watch as the ball travels through tubes, pipes and chutes. A Tracking Panel on your outdoor preschool playground allows children to observe and demonstrate directional words. They can visually track the object as it goes fast, faster and slower. When children use a variety of objects and compare the speed of travel, they learn about physical properties and cause and effect. The Tracking Panel is also available in cedar for your natural playground.

Street Scrabble, Seattle - via @Trending_City #engage2act Organised by the Seattle Department of Transportation as part of the First Hill Public Realm Action Plan, the Street Scrabble tournament is a great example of participatory design, starting a conversation between policy makers and locals on how their everyday spaces can be improved to create better gathering spaces.
A project by Bjarke Ingels in Copenhagen. Sometimes subtle interventions like the painting of lines can transform spaces of gathering into spaces of path. As part of the same project they used color and shapes in another public plaza to create interaction between the surrounding buildings. Although a simple idea it seems effective because it's such a contrast to what we expect.
