Team StoryStudio is creating a tool to facilitate interactive storytelling at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh (CMP) in MuseumLab, a space which features exhibits and workshops for youth and teens. Our team of six designers, artists, and engineers will investigate what it means to become truly immersed in a story and examine how to enhance the experience using mixed-reality interactives.

Our goal is to develop a “beta-level” tool and interface that can be used by high-school students and adults to generate meaningfully interactive storytelling events for children. At the end of the semester, we will pass our prototype on to the museum along with a set of demonstrative stories exhibiting the tool’s features and limitations. Ultimately, we hope it will support CMP’s initiative to blend digital and analog interfaces in novel and entertaining ways, and specifically spark further interest and support for interactive storytelling events.
