Earth Ed at Mount Clear College is an engaging specialist science and mathematics facility providing real world Earth Science educational experiences for Victorian students. Focusing on Renewable Energy, Climate Science, Sustainability and Geology, the centre’s programs provide access to specialist scientific equipment, innovative digital resources, and promote a scientific inquiry approach to learning.
Collaborating with both the IT department at Mount Clear College and Earth Ed staff, Vision One supplied and installed a fully interactive HDi 49″ Portrait Kiosk with touch functionality in the facility’s entranceway. The HDi Vendo incorporates capacitive touch technology with a unique ‘micro air gap’ feature for a seamless experience. To power and deliver interactive content, we connected a BrightSign XD1034 Digital Signage Media Player with USB interactive connectivity. The IT support staff at Mount Clear can build and distribute content remotely via the school’s network, automating the playback of engaging and interactive content via BrightAuthor’s online scheduler.
The kiosk – in addition to being an innovative visual showpiece – will be used to facilitate Earth Ed’s communication of facility information, advertising content and scientific data.
