My Role: Writer, Reference Diagram Illustrator, Content Developer

Description: Visitors approach a display with a high-speed video clip of a leaf in the wind. Visitors spin a dial, advancing the video clip frame by frame, watching as it curls into a cone. Amy researched the story, lead a team to re-film the experiment with scientist guidance, 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.
