Youth Design Team Fall 2011

In Fall 2011, Youth Design Team teens created a QR-code enabled smart phone experience for the exhibition Whales: Giants of the Deep, one of the first of its kind at the Museum. You can experience it too!  Just go the web site they created, Whale Watch.

Designed to be viewed on a hand-held device, these youth-designed videos, slide shows and audio casts can now be watched online.  A special thank to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute for this accompanying audio of a sperm whale breaching.

Learn about dolphin locomotion with Dr. Frank Fish! Understand anatomical variations between bottlenose and orca! Learn how dolphins feed with Assistant Mammals Curator Anna Goldman! Listen to a whale audiocast! And...find out what YOU share in common with these amazing animals.


Here is a preview of some of the fascinating whale sounds that the students have assembled.
