Our purpose is to help inspire wonder for intergenerational audiences through educational transmedia. The "Global Soundscapes: Mission to Record the Earth" project uses three prongs using informal learning activities that scaffold ideas into situational knowledge from physical and digital activities.
The different pathways for this project allows for discovery of soundscape ecology and STEM-based concepts by mimicking natural exploration in a digital laboratory. Each space in the iListen laboratory has a focus of learning a new skill, exploring a new skill, or solving a problem based on real data.
The iListen portal is designed to complement the Your Ecosystem Learning Labs and the Interactive Theater Show. Educators have access to printable worksheets, online media experiences, and activities that are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
