The scene of the confusion

Perplexed passers-by initially thought the tent was a bouncy castle but were pleasantly surprised by what they found inside.


The staff are lovely

The tent actually houses an interactive on-campus event run by Shell, including an energy zone which challenge participants to think about using human movement to create electricity.
