MOBILE MUSEUM

Mobile Museum: A Multimedia Interactive Exhibition

Mobile Museum is a multimedia-enhanced and interactive exhibition series designed to educate users on the impact of climate change in an enjoyable and memorable way. The first collection in the series, ‘Polar Vision’, includes the following five modules.

 

 

1. Time Machine

Remote-sensing technological advances have enabled scientists to monitor and better understand changes in the Earth’s system on a global scale. This hologram explores climate change in time and space in terms of atmospheric carbon dioxide, global temperature, Arctic sea ice extent and changes in the masses of the Arctic and Antarctic ice sheets.

 

2. Polar Exploration

The Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change houses a number of rare exhibits related to Dr Rebecca Lee’s expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic polar regions and the Himalayas. This hologram reproduces in 3D some of the highlights from the Museum, bringing them to the community.

 

 

3. Arctic Moves

The Arctic is home to diverse groups of animals. Many of these animals are losing habitats as a result of climate change, which is thinning the ice sheets and shrinking the coverage of sea ice. A warmer climate has allowed southern plant species to invade the Arctic region. Unless checked, this invasion will eventually replace the tundra with forests and make the land uninhabitable to many native animals. Let’s learn more about the different arctic animals and their characteristics and habits in this augmented-reality module.

4. Ice Secrets

 

Glaciers, which consist of masses of compressed snow laid down year after year, preserve a detailed record of the past climate. Scientists have been able to reveal details of the earth’s climate history over the past 800,000 years by drilling into the ice sheets and analysing the ice cores collected. This module reveals the secrets of the ice cores.

 

 

5. Call to Carbon Action

This module uses multimedia games to convey green messages in recycling, resource conservations and low-carbon lifestyle. Beat your friends and become green-winners.
