We explore the concepts of curiosity and interaction: how can we elicit curiosity in public spaces

through interactive systems? We have developed a model consisting of five curiosity-evoking

principles. In an iterative design research approach, we have explored the design implementations

of these principles. Each principle has been evaluated in a school context, giving us insights about

its use for changing behaviour through curiosity. The results of this exploration can be used to

inform the design of persuasive and playful interactive systems.
