dc.description.abstract This paper chronicles the development of a prototype for an interactive learning experience designed for the Dinosphere exhibit at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis in Indiana. The experience puts museum visitors in the shoes of a paleontologist for the duration of the visit in the exhibit. It consists of three stations that each include a digital activity that works in collaboration with physical spaces within the exhibit. Participants earn badges, as their paleontology status increases to the final stage of “Expert Paleontologist.” Subsequently, a study that compared the existing Dinosphere experience to this new one was conducted by another master’s degree student in Ball State’s Center for Emerging Media Design and Development and reported in her thesis, “ Dinosphere : A Day in the Life - Usability and User Experience Research for Meaningful Play” (Kitchel, 2017). en_US
