The Details

The Wall creates constructive dialogue by providing a physical interactive that connects large touch screens, a texting system, and a website. These synchronized components create a single, seamless interactive experience for disenfranchised younger voters to actively engage in local, national, and international issues. Visitors answer yes or no questions, upload a personal photo, and add comments and opinions. Others can then Join the Debate to leave their mark.
