Virtual Mold Making

Interactive Exhibit
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.

Virtual Mold Making
This virtual steel mill shows children what work was like in Johnstown's once-formidable industry. When children pass a variety of molds down a conveyor belt, a RFID tag calls up a corresponding video to show a similar mold being filled with molten steel and the corresponding cog being produced.
