Competition Entrant (Ages 10-12) for: Kid's Digital Design Contest
Overviewteamupdatesworkspacecalendarfiles 

Welcome to the multi-level, 360 degree surround-aquarium, built to bring more tourists to the Discovery Park area. It is connected to the ocean via a tube, so the naturally occurring wildlife can go in and out as desired during high-tide and self-closes at low-tide. It is made of steel alloys and fracture tolerating glass. It is a forty foot high box that anyone can enter into. The ceiling is open to the air. Most interestingly, it gives the park visitors a chance to view the sea life without causing harm to them. Please feel free to explore my design and thank you for this wonderful opportunity.
