Since the last post, the student design team came up with the student learning outcomes as well the possible station topics in the trailer. In addition, the team has created on over-arching theme that will be incorporated into all aspects of the exhibit. “Our rivers make us special” will be the theme that guides all future design of the RiverMobile. The summer design team also did a number of experiential trips to meet with exhibit designers at museums around the region. The exhibit designers were extremely helpful by introducing the design team to some of the challenges associated with the use of water. They also provided ideas for testing some of the curricular activities for the RiverMobile.
