Every year, the Big Brothers Big Sisters Discovery Festival inspires New Mexico’s students by presenting an array of STEAM learning experiences. Ideum is a Ride Sponsor of this year’s event and we’re excited to have the opportunity to demonstrate a variety of interactive experiences.
The Festival takes place at the Albuquerque Convention Center on November 3-4. Admission is free to children and their families. Ideum is pleased to join numerous other local companies and organizations to talk with students about STEAM-based careers and education paths.
At our booth, we will feature an engaging variety of interactive experiences on our multitouch tables and touch walls, including:
EM Spectrum is a popular educational application that allows guests to explore wavelengths along the electromagnetic spectrum.
This experimental object-recognition application lets users move biological “specimens” on a touch table to create an entertaining educational experience about microorganisms.
Featured at the Albuquerque BioPark Bugarium, Be A Bug allows players to fly as a beetle, dragonfly, or bee to collect food. The exhibit’s motion-recognition system actually tracks people’s movements as they navigate a virtual environment.
This interactive touch table experience is one of several applications we are developing for the new visitor center at Hoover Dam. This exhibit lets users explore a range of wildlife living in the desert southwest.
We’re pleased to be part of this local educational event!
