An interactive 360 surround projection in a dome that tells the disturbing story of acid-sensitive hydrangeas and their visible color change when soil is acidified. It serves as a metaphor for how human-made carbon emissions cause acidification of the environment and the oceans. Three large buttons made it possible for kids to interactively punch carbon pollutants into the projection such as falling cars, plastic bottles, and pollution-spewing factories as the hydrangea world turned frightening and dark.

A version of soccer that invites the players to kick a plastic or paper ball into the proper recycling bins. The end zones beyond the bins are the ocean, and the side lines are the storm drains. Every time a player kicks the ball into the ocean or the stormdrains, points are taken off often resulting in a negative score against Mother Nature.
