Museum uses Interactive Setup for Educational Exhibition
Exhibitions don’t have to be boring anymore! Today’s museums strive to transform static, boring information or exhibits into exciting educational tools through the use of innovative presentation techniques. One of which is interactive technology.
The Hong Kong Museum of History held an exhibition called The Road to Modernisation – 70 Years of the People’s Republic of China from July to August 2019, to illustrate the achievements of China’s modernisation in the aspects of the economy, education, technology, culture, sports, and people’s livelihoods. onActivity is responsible for creating the interactive set up at the Dynamic Experience Zone at the entrance of the exhibition.
An interactive projection touch wall was made with a graphical backdrop showing the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge and its spectacular infrastructures and fun facts. By tapping the different icons on the bridge, animations start to play and give details of the information. e.g. maximum speed limit, designed service life, strength of wind force it can withstand, number of bridge piers used, height of bridge towers, carriageway design, length of sub-sea tunnel, how the two artificial islands are fixed in place, traffic control and surveillance centre, customs clearance arrangement, etc.
Touch wall is interactive, fun and engaging. Therefore it is also a very good educational tool. Through this interesting setting, visitors can explore and learn about the world-class bridge building technology used in constructing the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge. This will help people, particularly the youth, to know more about the achievements of the modern day China, which is the goal of holding the exhibition.
