Tonight's Main Dish


Interactive Projection
Johnstown Area Heritage Association

Johnstown, Pennsylvania thrived during the heyday of coal mining, iron smelting, and railway shipping. We created several exhibits that captivate young visitors and teach lessons on the rich history of this town's industrial and cultural heritage.

Tonight's Main Dish
Johnstown's main immigrant populations include Irish, Italian, Polish, and Chinese peoples. To exemplify the town's rainbow gathering of nationalities, we developed this interactive table that allows children to serve foods representing all of these ethnicities. Play dishes of caprese salad, chicken paprikash, and chow mein, for instance, are fitted with RFID sensors. When placed upon the interactive table, the dishes cause different mealtime videos to project onto the table.
