The following post is from Jonathon Weiss, Curator of the National Health and Public Safety History Museum and is a very cool low-cost sponsorship opportunity for any company or group who supports Public Safety projects. Note: It closes 4-Mar-2020 so contact Jonathon ASAP if you or someone you know would like to help with this. Thank you ~ j & B
My name is Jonathon Weiss, founder and Curator of the National Health and Public Safety History Museum opening on March 14 in Dublin, Texas.
I have been working on a project to include more interactive new technology for visitors to the museum.
I have been building a virtual museum on a separate website that includes, audio & visual as well as more educational reading and digitized literature from the museum.
This project would make a set of disposable earbuds available as an option for every visitor to the museum that they can plug I to their phone, and as they walk around from exhibit to exhibit they can stand there, scan a QR code that brings them to a new webpage for something in the exhibit.
For example, in the civil defense exhibit, we have original vinyl records of radio shows produced by the office of civil defense that have music and then a public service announcement about how to prepare for an attack. You can scan a code and listen to the audio because I digitized a couple of the records and built an interactive webpage for it.
As of right now we have about 20 QR codes planned for before the grand opening, with plans to add many more. The problem is the headphones, disposable earbuds in bulk are not cheap in terms of initial investment.
This is a low-cost sponsorship that would cover 1 year of sponsoring interactive learning and education. $2,000 covers the cost to get at least 4,000 headphones and purchase the materials required to make the QR codes.
There is a button on the homepage of the website that brings you to the virtual museum to check it out yourself, and as the museum grows and time opens for me, the virtual will grow and the amount of QR codes will go up.
This sponsorship deadline is March 4, 2020 to ensure delivery of all the materials needed.
If this is something you or your company would like to do, it would put your name throughout the museum as well as by the headphones and on our legacy wall.
Please consider this offer but do not wait, act now before the opportunity closes.
