Students from IAPD 320: Product Design Studio 2 taught by Assistant Professor Steve Davidson and Professor of Practice Sebnem Demirkan collaborated with the Flint Hills Discovery Center to design interactive exhibits. The project's intent was to further the Discovery Center's mission to inspire people to celebrate, explore, and care for the Flint Hills. For the project, they defined their target audience, chose a concept or experience, and illustrated their exhibit using sketches and 3D modeling software. The interactive exhibits were designed for the second floor mezzanine gallery in the Discovery Center. Posters were on display on May 20 as part of the Flint Hills Festival at the Discovery Center.
