Jessica Strick is an exhibit developer at the Exploratorium.

In her ideal world, all exhibits would be immersive experiences, and she has started many ideas off with "if we had a room..." A few pivotal moments probably led her to this inclination: realizing, as a guide at the Bay Area Discovery Museum, that the indoor ship and crawling tunnels were the kinds of things that you could make as a profession; deciding, despite having studied history and film, that she really just wanted to be in a workshop; and then, digging, way back, remembering the delight and wonder of walking into her childhood home transformed by her big sister into a funhouse for a birthday party.

Most of the exhibits she's made are in the Exploratorium's Central Gallery, home to some of her favorite content- light, color, shadows.
