WEEK 1

The first week of interning at Praxik, I was immersed in research. On our first day, Anna revealed our client (The Science Museum of Minnesota) and made clear what we were to accomplish this week. Several articles were assigned which we started reading immediately. Midday each intern discussed their goals with the team. This was our first assignment due before our first meeting. During this discussion, I reevaluated my goals, some goals were unrealistic, some misdirected. Anna introduced us to augmented reality. Throughout the week, the assigned articles started to give me a clearer picture of what to expect, and what information our group should gather to create a prototype. Research is an extremely valuable part of this process. I feel that there is so much to learn. It will be essential to keep researching throughout the project, as familiarizing myself with terms and concepts will need repeated exposure to understand what the most beneficial information for designing the process and prototype.
