Joey Eschrich from ASU's Center for Science and Imagination writes, "To celebrate the official 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (previously) on January 1, 2018, we’ve launched Frankenstein200, a free, interactive, multiplatform experience for kids. Developed in partnership with the award-winning transmedia studio No Mimes Media (cofounded by the hyper-talented Maureen McHugh), with support from the U.S. National Science Foundation, Frankenstein200 is a digital narrative paired with hands-on activities happening in January and February at museums and science centers across the United States."
"The experience invites audiences to participate in science activities and thought experiments sponsored by the high-tech Laboratory for Innovation and Fantastical Exploration (L.I.F.E.), founded by Victoria “Tori” Frankenstein. As participants move deeper into the narrative, they grapple with increasingly complex ideas and confront shocking discoveries.
"Frankenstein200 features performances by actors Rose Abdoo (Gilmore Girls), Nikki SooHoo (The Lovely Bones), and Jeremy Howard (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). It was produced with advisement from the Arizona Science Center, the Bakken Museum in Minneapolis, the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, the Illinois Institute of Technology, the J. Craig Venter Institute, the Keats-Shelley Association of America, the New York Public Library, the Science Museum of Minnesota, the Rosenbach Free Library of Philadelphia, and the Museum of Science, Boston."
