iSWOOP Designs (2017)
From designing professional development for park rangers to designing visuals with scientists to engage the public, the iSWOOP project team of Hristov, Allen, and Merson is committed to compelling visualizations that spark interest, interactive learning experiences, and fostering curiosity. iSWOOP partners, park rangers and scientists seek to answer the questions, How do we know what we know — about frog, bats, rocks, and plants over time? During the next three years, several parks will adapt and adopt the iSWOOP approach to communicating science with public audiences. If you visit a national park, ask about the science that is going on behind the scenes. With gratitude to the National Park Service staff for their assistance, spirit of experimentation, and dedication to public service.
