New Touchscreen Display Installed
The Museum has just installed a new touchscreen on the ‘Home Front and Air War on Britain 1939-1945’. Built entirely in-house, the touchscreen’s content and software design was developed by the Museum’s Education Department. The hardware was purchased by the IT Department and the furniture was built by the Museum’s workshop staff.
This new touchscreen is an additional unit to the very successful ‘Women in the Air Force’ touchscreen we installed in February and is already proving popular with our visitors. In addition to the words and picture pages normally to be found on touchscreens, ‘Home Front and Air War on Britain 1939-1945’ includes wartime film clips of life in Britain during the Second World War and footage of V1 and V2 German ‘reprisal’ weapons.
It is anticipated that this new touchscreen, in addition to increasing the enjoyment for our visitors, will enhance our many primary school visits as many junior schools now include this topic in their learning.
