Roamer Interactive Exhibit “A Favourite”

Boston Museum of Science Program Manager Dan Noren explains:

“The Museum is situated within walking distance of World leading robotic institutes like the MIT Media Lab. Additionally, working collaborations with NASA, Northeastern University, Carnegie Mellon University, University of Southern California, iRobot, Exponent and others provide a lot of support and feature their robots in many of our interactive exhibits. The Classic Roamer has been one of our, and our visitors', long time favorites. We are very excited about the new features and capabilities of the Roamer-Too. The CCP staff and volunteers will be able to leverage their experience with the Classic Roamer to meet the unique challenges demanded by our visitors and our interactive displays.”

“When someone enters Cahners ComputerPlace they have to be attracted to an exhibit from a distance. Once at the exhibit, it has to engage and challenge but not be frustrating. Typically a visitor will spend between 3 and 10 minutes at an exhibit and this means the visitor has to find it intuitively simple to become involved. The objective of CCP exhibits and activities is to provide the visitor with a clear experience of one or two STEM Concepts in that short time interval.”
