The City of Cambridge introduced an augmented reality exhibit designed by students, which explores systemic racism right in front of the Cambridge Public Library.
Students at the Cambridge Public Library, an association between the library and Innovators for Purpose, developed the exhibit, “This Should Not Be.”
According to Reinhard Engels, this exhibit has several physical posts around the library, and each can be converted to AR with a smartphone. The City of Cambridge, Cambridge Trust, Cambridge Public Library Foundation, Margaret and H. A. Rey Curious George Fund, Eric and Jane Nord Family Fund, and Verizon provided financial support for the exhibit.
“The goal was to give teens a platform to speak out against systemic racism and talk about their ideas on how we might create an America that we can all believe in.” – Michael K. Dawson, CEO and co-founder of Innovators for Purpose.
