Journey Beyond the Fair

Development of a mobile application that connects museum visitors, students, and the public to the NEH-funded Journey To the Fair project about the history of the 1964-65 World's Fair.

Journey Beyond the Fair will combine a vast virtual world environment and hand-held devices to develop a tightly coupled home-school-museum paradigm that enhances traditional exhibits. This paradigm is designed to work as a national model where informal humanities education institutions can add depth of learning and heighten the level of interactivity and personalization of an onsite experience by strengthening the connections to a home/school-based virtual world experience. While in this instance we are addressing the 1964/65 New York World's Fair, institutions can adapt the concept based on subjects pertinent to their facility, culture and demographic visitation needs.
