Emerging Technologies: Bringing the North Atlantic Right Whale to Life at the New England Aquarium

The goal of our project was to identify and analyze emerging technologies that have the potential to be used at the New England Aquarium to educate the public on the dangers facing the North Atlantic right whale. By the conclusion of our project, we had identified five technologies that we believe have applications in a right whale exhibit. We also developed nine sample exhibits that utilize these technologies in various ways. All of this information is summarized in a Technology Comparison matrix, at the end of our report.
