Traveling through Time and Space: Bringing Geology to Lives Inside and Outside the Da Vinci Science Center: F’14-S’15

Client: Da Vinci Science Center, Allentown, PA. sponsored by the President’s Office, Lafayette College.

 

Da Vinci ReportThe 2014-2015 Lafayette College Technology Clinic has been working with the Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown, PA to develop ideas for interactive displays on the geology of the local region, both inside and out of the physical building.  The Da Vinci Science Center, whose mission is: “To bring life to science, and science to lives”, tasked the tech clinic with coming up with creative ideas to connect the outside world back to the museum with a specific focus on local geology.  The general idea is to develop displays that allow museum visitors to travel back in time and space to learn more about how PA’s geology changed and the conditions and environment in which the landscape was crafted.

The team will present their mid-project findings in early December. Come to this talk to learn more about PA’s history, what the tech clinic has been doing all semester, and their ideas on how to bring everyday experience and the Da Vinci Science Center together for an exciting lesson on geology.
