Visitors and students are asked to bring their cell phones with a QR app. Extensive reference data from the UW Burke Museum, Wikipedia, and USDA are at your fingertips. That said, the Gardens are intended to be an outdoor sight, touch, and smell learning experience in 3-dimensions rather than indoor flat-screen reading.

10 years ago when we started building the Gardens, we planned for large computer screens in each rainy-day kiosk. Visitors to date have clearly convinced us, especially the youngsters who learn via their cell phones. QR Codes are an accepted new norm practice for the young visitors of today.
