The Wisconsin Historical Society commissioned us to bring their Wisconsin Shipwrecks website to life in a more media-rich and interactive format. The Shipwreck kiosk contains hours of underwater video of shipwrecks, a rich narration of each of the dozens of shipwrecks on the kiosk, photo galleries, and a short biography of the ship.
There are fun learning activities for the family such as a Diving game, the Wreck of the Lost Lucerne interactive and an interactive Great Lakes Schooner tour.
In the Explorer's Tools portion, learn about the gear used for underwater archaeology and conservation. The Mission section explains what underwater archaeology is all about and the mission of preserving these historical monuments for future generations of divers to enjoy.
A vast database of shipwrecks, maritime areas, museums, parks, lighthouses and more located in the "Maritime Trails" of Wisconsin's coastal and inland waterways are found in the Version 2 touchscreen kiosk.
