If you find that the words "frog" and "science" conjure up images of
an amphibian in a dissection tray, LEAP Inc. and the
Louisville Science Center want you to reconsider.
(And they're promising you'll see something that's visually appealing.)
It's coming this summer. It's the Louisville Science Center's new and improved website.
Louisville-based, interactive web agency, LEAP, Inc.
was recently selected to design and develop the Science Center's new
LEAP's President, Daniel Knapp, said web surfers
should expect a bigger, faster Louisville Science Center website. He
said the site would also be more interactive and easier to navigate.
"The appeal of the Louisville Science Center is the exciting visuals
and interactive displays," said Knapp. "Our mission is to develop a
website that captures that same visual and interactive excitement."
Gail Becker, executive director of the Louisville Science Center,
said LEAP's creative and enthusiastic approach was the
impetus for exploring a new and better website.
"At first, we just wanted to update the site and improve load time,"
says Becker. "But when we sat down with LEAP and went
over our options, it became clear we could make things more exciting
for our public and easier for our staff."
When the e-commerce phase is complete, visitors to the Louisville
Science Center website will be able to purchase admission tickets and
gift shop items online. The Louisville Science Center's new website is
expected to go "live" on June 1, 2001. LEAP Inc. began
operations in 1998 as a creative, interactive web development agency.
The company serves a diversity of clients by providing website design,
maintenance, consultation, marketing and search engine registration.
