Science LinX uses Augmented Reality (AR) in order to communicate and visualize complex science – from nanotechnology to research on black holes – in an informal way for secondary school pupils. With the exhibit 'MIGHT-y' it's possible to connect varying scientists with their 3D research objects in order to 'MATCH' and score your personal 'meet and greet' with the scientist, scaled down to only 4 inches, just at your fingertips on your desktop. Flexible programming makes updating with current research findings possible, and varied possibilities for setup of the new exhibits make it possible to connect not only to High Techs, but also to Non Techs.

    • Museums and the Web 2011Session: Augmented Reality Tanja van der Woude – project leader Ingeborg Veldman – project leader
    • Paper• “Science LinX: the NeXt Level in Augmenting Science Center Xperiences”• Main focus AR exhibit “MIGHT-y”
    • Introduction• Science LinX (since 2008) as part of faculty of mathematics and natural sciences – 3000 students – 1400 staff members – Science LinX: 4 staff members + students• Decline science student numbers (before 2008)
    • Successful outreach program• Teachers network• Q&A services for pupils• Discovery science truck• Science LinX
    • Target group & Goals• Secondary school pupils: age 14 – 17• FMNS more transparant and accessible• Showing research and study options• Bringing about an attitude change• Exploring new media
    • Faculty building
    • BètaMentality Model
    • Nanopodium• Initiated by Dutch government• A platform for exchanging thoughts, ideas, opinions and best practices on (the impact of) nanotechnology.• Aim: stimulate a public dialogue about the opportunities and threats of nanotechnology and resulting applications with regard to individuals and society as a whole.
    • Nano LinX• Master class and symposium• AR exhibit “MIGHT-y” based on the short documentary film “Powers of Ten” (1977) by Charles and Ray Eames
    • “MIGHT-y”exploring the 10 -15– 10 24… femto, nano, galaxies…
