    Interview with Science Café presenters and web developers/designers Michael J. Newman and Scott Hutchinson. As seen on Boing Boing! http://boingboing.net/2012/03/14/library-staircase-delightfully.html Kennedy Library’s grand staircase was transformed into a live game board using wire, cans and balloons as part of the Cal Poly Science Café series. To play the game, we aimed and threw tennis balls at the cans, which acted as live switches. A digital scoreboard tracked the team’s cans as they were knocked over; it was shared on displays throughout the library and on participants’ mobile devices.
