Behind the Scenes Tour at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science: Expedition Health Exhibit

Dave Noel, Denver Museum of Nature and Science

Experience a behind-the-scenes tour of the new Expedition Health Exhibit, possibly the most technology intensive museum exhibit in the country. The new 10,000 sq ft exhibit utilizes personalized interactives, multi-media stage demonstrations, a special-effects theater, and a hands-on wet lab to allow visitors to learn how their body responds to a host of stresses and situations. Over 65 computers power the intensively personal interactives, media presentations, AMX command & control system, and a backbone network that collects visitor data from each interaction and returns it to the visitor on a printed card at check-out, as well as allowing the visitor to explore their personal data in more depth at home via a secure Web-session.

The tour will be followed by a lunch, brief presentation of the behind the scenes technology, and a Q&A session with some of the exhibit technology engineers and developers.

This tour is limited to 25.
