description
Programmed interactive kiosks related to health for the Miami Science Museum. From the project web site:

“Heart Smart is a 1000-square-foot English, Spanish and Haitian Creole traveling exhibition. Its interactive components engage visitors in the subject of heart health by inviting them to take some simple personal measurements (e.g., blood pressure, height, weight, waist size, and self-reported health habits). The exhibit also informs visitors about the research process and invites them to contribute their health and demographic data – on an anonymous basis – to real life research”
