Here is a playground of ideas to slowly think, to put into words, to share with others what you felt from the various exhibits and experiences at SusHi Tech Square 1F Space.
Open your mind through touching different books, materials, and toys, and use your words to freely expand your imagination to what you took for granted, or to a distant future you never conceived of.
