Location-Aware Informal Learning Experiences

$300K NSF award
User research: formative  

I established an institutional relationship with Qualcomm where the Exploratorium became a testbed for Indoor Positioning technology, which enabled an NSF award. We researched location-aware user experience designs, and how science centers can track visitors at indoor venues to improve informal STEM learning outcomes. Below are excerpts from a talk I gave at UC Berkeley's Qualcomm funded SWARM lab.  I was as a co-principal investigator with Joyce Ma and Josh Gutwill.
