National Coal
Mining Museum

Wakefield, UK

Overview:

The National Coal Mining Museum for England is based at the site of Caphouse Colliery in Overton. It gives the visitor a unique opportunity to see and feel at first hand what life was like at the coalface.


Role:

I programmed four separate hands-on exhibits for the site aimed at children. The exhibits are used to learn more about signalling, ventilation, water data and how the pumps are powered. This was done using creative gameplay, animation and external hardware interfaces.
