IN STORYWORLD: Plan is to have visitor enter, see the two tables - one with nerd and one with cool kids - here is where you have to choose - if you go to the table with the cool kids the nerdy kids feeling's are hurt demonstrated with head down and tears bubble and if you go to the table with the nerdy kid all the cool kids make fun of you demonstrated with jeering, mean comments, etc.
Final scene will be if you have chosen the cool kids and sat at down at the table you teleport to a sphere where the nerdy kid is portrayed in an image crying and turning away from you. If you go to the nerdy kid table and sit down you get an image of the other "cool" kid making fun of you and ignoring you
Finally after either chice you get the message sent to you that Every choice has a consequence.

Story: Basically, the story about two teenage girls Jen and Sarah. Jen is bulemic and Sarah discovers this. The conflict in the story is whether or not Sarah tells someone about Jen's eating disorder.
Story starts at entrance platform where there are several newspaper headlines displayed - maybe flashing in and out that say things like "Teenage Eating Disorders on the Rise" and Young girl collapses at party from self-starvation" Bulimia: The Silent Killer" etc. Then the visitor hears the student recording of the first two stanzas of the Frost poem (we already have these recorded) As the visitor moves into the first hallway of the story world they are immersed inside a "whisper globe" where they hear "What should I do? What should I do?" One idea is to have the hallways replicate a school hall- lined with lockers and the triggers might cause a locker to open which would have the images or sounds --The image on the globe is one of Sarah holding her head in her hands with a worried look on her face. (We are taking these pics tomorrow!) then the visitor enters the first hallway where images are displayed showing a group of teens in the fall, in the winter, Spring and in each the girl Jen is visibly sad, head hanging down - getting thinner and more haggard looking while the other teens are all lively and happy - in the summer shots they all have summery clothes on but Jenn is in a hoody and baggy sweats. The whispers (audio files) are the kids gossiping "what's up with Jen? She looks so different -- she never eats" she's acting so weird etc. as the visitor reaches the first corner to turn into the next leg of the cube-they enter a movie globe where a short film is playing of Sarah walking into the girl's room and catches Jen forcing herself to throw up--JeSarah screams "What are you doing??" and Jen screams back "Please don't tell! Please don't tell!" Stepping out of the globe and continuing down the next hallway is where the conflict is displayed - . Text and audio files of "what should I do?" I don't want her to hate me" What if she never speaks to me again, what if she dies, what will the kids think? Maybe it's not so bad etc. " Proceeding down to the next corner where there is a booth of sorts and the visitor is asked "What would you do? There are then two paths one marked "tell" and one marked, "don't tell" The path to the right (Tell) will take the visitor through a series of images text and sounds that reflect the kids shunning Sarah - calling her a rat etc. and will conclude with images and sounds sof Jen being taken away in an ambulance, maybe with an image of a hospital in the distance. The visitor then has the option of either teleporting back to the tell/don't tell area and going down the left hand side where the images and sounds are reflecting the kids being sad and all upset whispers "DId you hear about Jen? She might die she's so sick - it may be too late " but also- the kids will be saying things like "I can't believe Sarah knew all along and DIdn't say anything " She could have saved Jen!" etc. This left side path leads to a hearse, maybe with a graveyard in the distance. The visitor concludes the experience by stepping into the "exit room" where they can leave comments and read other remarks from other visitors (some starter remarks will be prepared already) and the audio is the student reading of the last two verses of the Frost poem. The lesson learned could be marqueed or displayed in some manner: "The most important decisions, are the hardest ones to make"
