Interactive Learning Stations, Huntington Library Art Gallery
This project created two touch screen learning stations installed in the renovated Huntington House on the grounds of the Huntington Library in San Marino, CA. Working with an education specialist at the Huntington, we developed projects around exhibits on Silver and Porcelain, targeted at 8-12 year-olds. These touch projects focused on the history and craft of the objects displayed, and involved children in interactive activities such as selecting the kiln temperature to fire the porcelain, or putting their stamp on a silver vase.
In collaboration with Liz Burrill (visual design), and Jamie Cavanaugh (technical production & animation), I developed the interaction design and wrote the software.
