Touring the Norwalk Maritime Aquarium

on Jan 31, 2018

Invited to Visit ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿก

Our journey began when one of my students at the Horizons program was discussing with his father the Unity class he's taking. That simple conversation sparked what may be an exciting and fruitful program. As I came to learn, roughly 1 year ago the aquarium setup a massive 32-screen digital fish wall, running an app that enabled visitors to paint their very own aquatic life and upon giving it a name, watch it join the hundreds of marinelife up on the big screen! The aquarium's IT Manager Serigo had facilitated this project and after listening to his son's enjoyment of our Unity class, emailed me to introduce himself and the digital wall exhibit. Sergio invited me to come see it for myself, meet him, and tour the facility!
