The interactive Investigate Sunscreen exhibit enabled visitors to explore and visualize the protection of sunscreen against ultraviolet (UV) rays.  Sunscreen showed up as black when viewed with a UV camera, illustrating the absorption of UV light by the protective lotion. 


I led the development of this exhibit at the Museum of Life and Science in North Carolina.  I researched UV cameras, experimented with sunscreens to discover which ones had the most UVA protection, prototyped set-up and signage, and evaluated the visitor experience.  The museum exhibits team built the prototype and Jeff Kennedy Associates did the final design work.
