SciPlay from the New York Hall of Science will discuss how the New York City community informed the design of an early childhood app, Picture Dots, which aims to facilitate playful intergenerational mathematics, science, and literacy conversations. This poster presents how SciPlay play-tested Picture Dots activities with diverse families at World Maker Faire in New York City, which inspired the creation of a preliminary learning activity guide. Presenters will engage the audience with a hands-on introduction to the app and discussion of its potential as a storytelling tool.
