Specimen Explorer

Choose a specimen and place it in the examination area!

Curiosity leads interaction with this tactile experience. The Specimen Explorer (previously The Exploration Station) evolved from our love of blending physical interactions with digital content. Using a customizable  database, some custom electronics, and a little bit of magic, the Specimen Explorer encourages visitors to place a specimen in the examination area, then instantly displays information about that item on the built-in touchscreen. Specimens can be housed in acrylic cases, cast in resin, or left as-is. The latest version of the SE has been built to travel! Perfect for classroom visits or loaned exhibits.
