  • Prototyped and user tested with college students to assess its efficacy for learning

Designed an interactive educational app that was packaged with college textbooks
Contained ten sections, each with topics and activities
Users could spin around mineral samples in 3D
Animations and callouts taught about volcanic activity
The app demonstrated physics through interactive modules
Games would challenge students to demonstrate their knowledge
