Charlotte-based digital agency, Union, was hired by Discovery Place to create a unique, interactive touch screen experience for its new exhibition, Think It Up. The exhibition, which opened to the public on May 1, 2010, includes ”thought studios” that facilitate engagement in the process of innovation.
This digital technology allows participants to experiment with stop motion animation as well as digitally document their innovative creations. Sharing is also a large component of the experience so we created separate viewing stations within the exhibition and a mini-site to showcase the inventive work produced by participants, and to provide inspiration to newcomers.
We wanted to be able to collect and view all the great innovative ideas that will be created in this new exhibition, which is part of the largest renovation in Discovery Place’s history,” said Sarah Macey, director of exhibition design for Discovery Place.
“We selected Union as our partner for this project because of their expertise in creating great interactive designs and user-friendly interfaces – an essential component for a tool that will have a high volume of use." This is not Union’s first project with Discovery Place. Union also designed the hands on science museums’ websites: discoveryplace.org, charlottenaturemuseum.org and discoveryplacekids.org.
