Be Your Own Avatar!

Students will use face morphing technology to become their own Avatar tour guide. By using their own facial features, students are capable of seeing (almost literally!) their potential in STEM careers.

Within this self-paced learning environment, students can earn virtual STEM badges through exhibit engagement during their trip. This NEW Avatar system helps ensure a deeper, more meaningful, age appropriate synergy within the exhibit experience.

At exhibits, students can experience:

  • Unique grade grouped K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12 avatar interactions

  • Deeper understanding of the science behind the exhibits

  • Unlock more avatar customizations through exhibit interactions

  • Rating the exhibits on an Emoji scale

  • Possibly even see themselves “inside the exhibit”

  • Content in Spanish and English
