  • Durban Natural Science Museum

    The Durban Natural Science Museum, the most utilised natural science museum in South Africa with almost 300 000 visitors annually, is designed to share information about the earth and life on the planet both past and present.

    To provide an interactive experience that educated visitors on both natural and man-made phenomena that affects our planet, as well as how we can live more harmoniously on it, our museum exhibition design team put together two touch screen applications.

    The Living Planet application gave visitors a 3D interactive Earth with touch points all over the globe. Visitors could rotate the digital global and select touch points that caught their fancy, opening up information on topics on ranging from El Nino to Urbanisation.
    The application also included animations depicting the earth’s carbon cycle as well as an internal view of the planet showing the layers from outter crust to inner core. A time lapse sequence displayed how the continents have formed, changed and shifted over the millennia.

    Our Green Team Game plays out on a touch table with 4 different characters each representing an element of the environment, namely water, energy, food and waste. The characters, a mudskipper, firefly, cane rat and dung beetle, present the player with illustrated scenes and scenarios. Players earn Earth Tokens for answering the questions presented correctly.
