    NESCA - 2011

    Our science museum exhibit design team put together several multimedia experiences, including a hands-on Nuclear Fuel Cycle energy exhibit, touch screen kiosks, interactive wall projections and video displays.

    The Nuclear Energy Corporation of South Africa (NECSA) Visitor Centre in Pretoria needed a variety of interactive multimedia energy exhibits which would educate visitors on various aspects of the nuclear industry, from the history of the nuclear industry in South Africa to nuclear fuel production and management.

    To fulfil this brief, our science museum exhibit design team created several multimedia energy exhibits, installations and games including a touch screen kiosk, custom-made to resemble the NECSA logo and a 5.5 metre interactive wall projection displaying the timeline of the nuclear industry in South Africa.

    We also custom built the Nuclear Fuel Cycle energy exhibit which is fashioned after the traditional large nuclear plant control panel. Visitors trigger informative videos by pulling a large lever through set paths, from one numbered, clearly marked stage to the next, adding a satisfying hands-on involvement.
    Four touch screens educate the visitor on energy sources, from wind power to nuclear, while the Energy Planner multitouch table features an educational game where visitors can experiment and learn about city-power generation and planning. An eye-catching video wall display examines 10 myths about nuclear energy and visitors can also test their knowledge in a quiz on two touch-screens embedded into life-sized human wire sculptures.

    Meanwhile, the Waste Trolley exhibit might at first glance appear to just be two trolleys piled with junk but this interactive exhibit comes to life to display narrated videos on household and industrial waste.
