Playing with Dinos: Designing In-Museum Games for Visitors
Let’s play a quick game: Fossil Fan! You and a friend look at a dinosaur skeleton for just five seconds. Now turn around and guess how many bones it has. Whoever is the closest, without going over, wins.
Would that be fun to play? Would it be educational? More importantly, can you design a better game? We think you can! Join us for three days, where you will delve deep into our dinosaur halls and educational game design to help us develop quick, fun, and easy games for Museum visitors to play.
