Before heading off to winter break, our Tech Geniuses had the opportunity to travel to the Shedd's Teen Learning Lab. While visiting the Shedd, our team had two primary goals in mind.
We began the our trip in one of the learning lab rooms. We met with Alex Herrera and Wade Berger to discuss our goals for the project and the Shedd's goals. During the meeting we were made aware of the resources that Shedd could contribute to the project, that ranged from specialized employees to high quality recording equipment and software. Together, we established several goals for the project.
After the team was sure of the guidelines and expectations of the project, we were introduced to the Amazon Rainforest exhibit. The Amazon Rainforest exhibit was one of the best options for a few reasons.
At our next Shedd visit we will create a storyline and have it approved, and we will determine if we have the right equipment to create a 360 video.
