  • Children's Exhibit Design: Undersea Archaeology
    A mock exhibit design
  • This is a mock exhibit design for children about undersea archaeology and shipwrecks in Rhode Island.  Each panel would have interactive and 3D elements on it.
  • The boxes are flaps that can be lifted to learn more about specific shipwrecks.
  • In the porthole there is a video playing.
  • On the sides of this panel there are periscopes that viewers can use to look around the room.  In the porthole there is a video playing.
  • In the orange box are magnetic cut outs of pieces of the shipwreck.  The box on the right is also magnetic.  The object of this activity is to match the pieces of the wreck to where it belongs on the original ship.
  • The circle that the seal is balancing contains real artifacts in a plexiglass circle.  The boxes labeled 1-6 are flaps that can be lifted to learn more about how artifacts go through a cleaning process.
  • The white box above the turtle are transparencies that have images showing animals and plant life.  The transparencies flip over onto the image of the shipwreck where the viewer can see how animals and plant life can take move into the shipwreck.
