The Mount St. Helens Science & Learning Center’s “Life Renewed” project is a transmedia educational environment that tells the story about the rebirth of life on Mount St. Helens following the 1980 eruption. The project incorporates games and other forms of information via a touch screen installation and mobile device. It was designed and created by 23 seniors in the Creative Media & Digital Culture Program at Washington State University Vancouver, under the guidance of scientists and educators from Mount St. Helens Science and Learning Center, the Mount St. Helens Institute and the Creative Media and Digital Culture program.
“Life Renewed” debuted on December 18, 2014 at Angst-Nouspace Gallery, 1015 Main, in downtown Vancouver. Over 150 people attended the opening event.
The installation will remain at the gallery until January 15 for viewing and will be available for exhibit until April 2015. It will be permanently displayed at the Mount St. Helens Science & Learning Center and be part of the 25th anniversary event on May 18, 2015.
