Miracle Workshop

Miracle Workshop is a collaborative project with Give Kids the World Village (GKTW), a nonprofit resort in Central Florida that provides cost-free vacations to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.  Our goal is to retrofit Tom Foolery, an existing puppet at GKTW, and design him to be a robust animatronic figure that can be easily operated by a naïve user-which in the GKTW context would be their volunteers. Additionally, we are reimagining Tom Foolery’s story, creating a more interactive show, and installing show elements to develop a magical, immersive experience for the children who visit the village.

Team Members: Raisa Chowdhury, Josh Danzig, Alex Gobeler, Atul Goel, Niharika Jain, Dustin Stephan
