Saint Mary's students create mobile app for Lindsay Wildlife Museum

A Saint Mary's School of Science team developed a new mobile app for the Lindsay Wildlife Museum The "LWM Encounters" app helps Bay Area residents to learn about local wildlife and share wildlife photos and experiences via social media.  The app was the result of a collaborative partnership between the Lindsay Wildlife Museum and Saint Mary's and was made possible by a grant from the Science Education for New Civic Engagement and Responsibilities and its Informal Science Education (SENCER-ISE) initiative, which aims to make science accessible to the public.

Mathematics and Computer Science Professor Weiwei Pan served as the project manager and a developer on the team that created the app, which included seniors Marcos Avalos '14, Elliott Battle '14, Anthony Braddick '14, and juniors Katy Duran '15 and John Spalluzzi '15. Find out more about the app at
