Research Project

TIDESS (Touch Interaction for Data Engagement with Science on Spheres)

The focus of the project is to investigate the ways that children and adults engage with and learn from large-scale interactive displays in a science museum context. We have conducted studies on a Microsoft Surface touch table and a Pufferfish interactive sphere, both displaying ocean temperature visualizations. We hope to use the information gathered through these studies to iteratively prototype and inform design for these platforms to better engage children and adults for science museum learning.
