German 103 Creates Visual/Auditory Gallery

The students in Professor Kikkert's German 103 class have been studying the various regions of Germany along with their art, music, literature, cuisine, architecture, and manufactured products.  To illustrate some of their findings, students made a display in the upstairs atrium of Gailor consisting of a map of Germany covered with QR Codes and images of the objects they have chosen.  Passersby can use their phones to scan the QR codes, which links to a voice recording site that plays the students telling a riddle in German about their chosen object.  Viewers can then choose from among the images to find the answer to the riddle.
