Children test projectors in the shelter

We are currently collaborating with the Museu d’Historia de Barcelona in the project Refugi 307 – Moving through the Past. The goal of the project is to design a learning experience based on Full-Body Interaction for one of the bomb shelters, namely Refugi 307, that were built during the Spanish Civil War in Barcelona. We conducted a participatory design study with students of a local school. In the next months, there will be more information published about the design process of the learning experience.
