Event description

Description

Dr Lyn Wilson, Digital Documentation Manager and Dr Miles Oglethorpe, Head of Industrial Heritage. Historic Environment Scotland

Go Forth! is a major new educational resource for Scottish schools. Informed by the recently completed 3D digital documentation of the three Forth Bridges and research into archival records, this resource supports the teaching of STEM subjects through the Curriculum for Excellence.

Cutting-edge 3D laser scanning and recording of the three bridges started in 2013, which led to the creation of complete digital models, generating a unique learning resource designed to inspire learners and encourage interest in the bridges themselves, and in science and technology subjects.

Archival images from National Records of Scotland's Forth Bridge collection were invaluable in the development of these resources. Working with assistance from digital learning expertise from Dundee City Council, teaching packages which incorporate lesson packs, practical resources and a digital game were created. All are available, free of charge, through the GLOW network. Further information about the project is available here: https://www.theforthbridges.org/visit/go-forth/.

This talk will outline the stages in the project, and highlight the importance of archival resources in its development.
