Abstract

The Legacy Reef Foundation (LRF) aims to develop an application to accompany their coral tank wall to increase visitors’ knowledge on coral reefs and motivate them to carry on the LRF’s mission to preserve and restore coral reefs. This report outlines our contribution to the development of the educational application by providing extensive background on coral reefs and the use of technology in informal science learning. We provided the LRF a basic but complete application that can be used. We also developed detailed designs for future versions of the application for a software developer to create. Additionally, we provided the LRF with recommendations for how to further develop the application.
