Heather Segale, Education and Outreach Director for the Lake Tahoe Environmental Research Center, describes how the UC Davis facility connects visitors to place through interactive data exhibits and visualizations. The AR Sandbox exhibit, using projections on white sand, encourages visitors to explore the topography and hydrology of Lake Tahoe. A touch-screen exhibit provides real-time and historical data of the lake and surrounding region and visitors can also contribute their own data and observations through a citizen science app.
This talk was part of the Visualization for Informal Science Education conference held at the Exploratorium, which explored themes of interpretation, narration, broadening participation, applying research to practice, collaboration, and the affordances of technology.
