What Does it Take to be an Xplorer?

Eldheimar Volcano Museum

You know you need to hone your digital skills to grow your resume and your business. But what are the core digital competencies you should be developing? In June, the SEGD Academic Task Force issued the XGD Core Competencies, which outline the baseline skills essential for success in XGD. You can cover them all at the Xplorer Digital Camp coming up Aug. 6 in Seattle. But hurry—capacity is limited and seats are filling fast!

Seattle Skies

Skypad Interactive Wall, Seattle Space Needle

As if you needed another reason to head for Seattle, there’s the famous Space Needle, hip since 1962 when it was built for the World’s Fair. Now there’s a brand new way to experience the amazing views. Skypad™, designed by Belle & Wissell, is an award-winning interactive experience that invites guests to browse photo archives, sign into a 3D guestbook, and make their own wonderful (but possibly vertigo-inducing) memories.

TING: Technology & Democracy

Honor Award 2015
TING: Technology & Democracy

TING: Technology & Democracy was designed to explore the complex relationship between specific technologies—historic and emerging—and the development of democratic societies. Museum curators at the Norsk Teknisk Museum posed the question, “Is any given technology good, bad, or neutral in the development of democracy?”

Learning to See

Merit Award 2015
Learning to See

Learning to See, the permanent exhibit in the new Science Pyramid space at the Denver Botanic Gardens, brings to life the stories hidden within Colorado's landscape. By helping visitors of all ages and backgrounds to recognize the complexity of the scenes that surround them and understand their interconnectedness with the environment, the exhibit provokes exploration and inspires wonder. It also highlights, for the first time, the important research work conducted at the Gardens and the ways in which citizens can become involved in plant conservation research themselves.
