As an intern of the Learning Technologies Center, I focus my work on documenting the many activities of the museum's Play. Tinker. Make. program. Since the program began, we have acquired just over 100 different activities that our volunteers facilitate on the museum floor. From 12:00pm to 4:00pm on Saturdays, our volunteers of all ages are engaged with museum visitors, doing activities ranging from creating sculptures out of newspaper and masking tape to making shoes out of cardboard! The creation of Snapguide intruction sets insures that our volunteers have a resource available to them explaining how an activity is done. It also makes this programs activities available to other museums, schools, and families who are unable to be here to do an activity when it is being demonstrated on our museum floor.
Where the magic happens! Documentation of activities involves monochromatic backdrops, a camera, and a tripod.
