Grand Teton National Park Foundation and Grand Teton National Park have launched a public beta version of the Jenny Lake Explorer App, developed and published by Grand Teton National Park Foundation and available soon on app stores. As a young visitor explores the Jenny Lake area, they can complete multiple interactive activities on a smartphone or tablet app.
The experiences integrate with onsite exhibits, discovery trail, and lake overlooks. This modern, digital extension of educational displays at Jenny Lake was made possible by Grand Teton National Park Foundation through a generous grant of $250,000 from AT&T.
Grand Teton National Park Foundation worked with the National Park Service, University of Maryland KidsTeam, Teton County Recreation District, and Grand Teton National Park to host a two-day discovery workshop. Kids, researchers, rangers, and technologists worked together to develop ideas for the app on site at Jenny Lake.
The result is a fun and engaging digital experience that leads users around Jenny Lake while encountering virtual reality wildlife, building mountain ranges, and even summiting the Grand Teton.
