My Role: Writer, Reference Diagram Illustrator, Content Developer

Description: Visitors approach a display with a touchable replica of Paradise Flying Snake. A small video clip loops, showing the snake jumping off a branch and gliding through the air. Amy researched the story, wrote the text, and created a draft diagram for the illustrator. She also visitor-tested diagram steps and visuals until visitors successfully understood the biomechanical principles. Text is in both English and Spanish.
