Monkeystack produced a suite of engaging and educational interactive learning stations and games for the Marine Discovery Centre, the only coastal and marine educational facility for school-aged students and the broader community in South Australia.
With the support of a Green Adelaide Grassroot grant, we developed six unique experiences delivered on digital touchscreen tables, motion detecting projections and iPads that sparks imagination and encourages curiosity whilst empowering their 8,000+ student and community visitors per year to actively protect South Australia’s iconic coastal and marine environments.
The interactive experiences complement and enrich the Marine Discovery Centre’s aquariums, beachside marine trails and other indoor educational activities, empowering visitors to actively protect South Australia’s coastal and marine environments.
Explore South Australia’s landscape with ‘Climate Change Chaos’ on a large digital touchscreen with multiple touchpoints allowing simultaneous users, take a deep dive with ‘Discovery Island’, a game controlled by gross body movement using an optimised ergonomic handset that we produced with Positure, run among ‘Shoaling and Schooling’ motion detecting projections and play drag and drop games on smaller digital touchscreens with ‘Beachcombing’ and ‘Sounds of the Ocean’. Our work with the Marine Discovery Centre continues in the Kaurna Learning Station (The Wodli) with an immersive projection developed with Karl Telfer, a Kaurna cultural bearer, artist and community leader.
