The Franklin Institute launched an expansive, two-year digital media initiative to enhance its interpretive programming and audience engagement, both within the museum and online. Building upon its reputation as one of the leading science centers in the country, and its strengths in providing high-quality, hands-on exhibits, The Franklin Institute researched, tested, and launched new digital technologies and dynamic content that enrich visitor experiences. Newly released digital initiatives combine cutting-edge virtual reality technology, a mobile application, and science storytelling that connect audiences to how scientific wonder and discovery transform people's lives.
