CEMAS are delighted to announce the launch of IRON App, a collaboration between Irontown Interactive and The Centre of Excellence in Mobile Applications and Services (CEMAS).
This new App is part of a growing appreciation of Merthyr’s historic past as a world leader in industrial innovation. The past century has seen the town suffer from relative economic and social decline, but there is undoubtedly an economic and cultural renaissance underway. Innovative projects such as REDHOUSE and the Iron Game App not only serve to highlight the proud past of Merthyr, but also offer a creative vision for the future and a means of inviting others to explore and appreciate its heritage.
Sign up for the Iron App Launch and find out how this innovative new app has the potential to teach children and adults alike about the rich, cultural heritage of Merthyr Tydfil via the medium of a video game.
