In assisting the London Science Museum in the redevelopment of their Launch Pad gallery, this project researched the concept and applications of "trace". Trace, which is a way for visitors leave behind a reminder of their visit, was determined to have noticeable effects on visitors' behavior and engaged learning. Upon conclusion of observations and interviews conducted while three designed prototypes were on gallery, guidelines for the implementation process were created along with specific recommendations for the new Launch Pad.
