David Bickerstaff worked as creative director of the audio visual presentation for Newangle who created several interactives and linear programmes that explain the science of Astronomy. ‘The Astronomers Table’ is an interactive that allows the visitor to select topics and listen to actual Astronomers describing space concepts. The content is activated by the visitor placing a ‘puck’ over a hotspot on the interactive horizontal area and content is delivered on the vertical screens. ‘Build a Space Probe’ is a three player game that allows the visitor to select one of three space missions and choose the correct instruments to launch their own probe. The visitors can play the role of a scientist, engineer or communications expert, and the main screen encourages them to work in collaboration to create a successful mission.
