Encouraging environmental awareness
Timeline: 2 months
Client: By Design
Aim: To create a suite of desktop interactives that would compliment 'Climate Cops'; a new multi-media resource aimed at pupils aged from 7-11. The interactives had to be robust, transportable and intuitive to use.
What we did: FifeX created 4 interactives: Hand Generator - allowing users to appreciate 'what is energy?'Wind Turbine - experiment the effects of increasing the number of vanes, the size, shape and weight of each vane and finally the orientationWater Power - demonstration tool to show how we can harness the force of water to produce electricityTransformer Station - step-up / step-down transformerWe also refurbished and repaired some existing older exhibits including a water power exhibit by incorporating a speed control for the water pump thus allowing users to correlate the wheel speed to the amount of energy it produces.We have continued working with By Design and their client, providing maintenance on these products for the heavy usage that they receive on the road!
