In the context of Theo Jansen’s visit to Chile, different educational resources were created to help explain his ideas and work, and thus generate activities for children and students in order to reflect on art, science, evolution, nature, and creation. The online downloadable educational workbook and videos on various project processes, in addition to the exhibition journal with information and activities are available here.
