Today, Trustees met Wiebke Hendry, Otago University Centre for Science Communication internship co-ordinator, on site, about a possible internship with the Gasworks museum. Wiebke indicated she will promote our operation as a possible internship, but advised the final decision is with the students and no guarantees could be made. The trustees acknowledged the strengthening ties with the university and noted we are happy to accommodate an intern’s application at any time.
Today members of the GWM board visited the Otago Museum to view their recently opened interactive exhibition “Survival Factor”, prepared and installed by the Otago Institute of Design. Mark Miller, Otago Institute of Design, manager, gave GWM trust members an introduction and description of the various exhibits. Trust members considered the display with the view to provide concept systems to be installed in our refurbished Fitting shop. A short sharp brain-storm session followed. Watch this space for the introduction of the latest technology soon to be installed in our museum complex.
