Nanonation Installs First Seattle Area Digital Trophy Case

Nanonation was excited to work with their first West Coast school to design and deploy a custom Digital Trophy Case. Options High School in the Seattle Area is innovative, providing students with a more personal and exploratory approach to education.

Providing a means for Options to share their story, programs, and successes in a unique way was Nanonation’s goal. The school recently completed its new building, so the budget was a concern. They were able to acquire funding through donors and partners, which they are also able to recognize through their Digital Trophy Case.

Their Digital Trophy Case was installed just in time for graduation to display composites of all the graduating seniors. On the day of graduation, the Options superintendent was excited about how the school would be able to share the Options story and highlight students throughout the school for years to come. During the summer, Options filled their Digital Trophy Case with additional content, including their yearbooks, which led to students flocking around the unit excited to begin the school year.

Digital Trophy Case continues to provide rich experiences for students, alumni and faculty to share their stories and highlight every aspect of their school on an engaging platform.

Ten-Hut! Nanonation Helps Bring Attention to the Nebraska National Guard Museum

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to have a Drill Sergeant yell orders at you like a soldier? The “I Am the Guard” exhibit at the Nebraska National Guard Museum in Seward, NE will give you a peek into what life in the military is all about and the history of the National Guard in Nebraska. 

Jerald Meyer, Nebraska’s State Historian and museum board member, envisioned a highly interactive museum that integrates digital experiences with historical artifacts. That’s where Nanonation came in.

Nebraska National Guard picIMG_8593We developed three separate digital experiences for the museum to help visitors and recruits gain a better understanding of the National Guard in Nebraska.

The first installation visitors encounter is a portrait-oriented video wall featuring the National Guard crest. When triggered by movement, a

video of a Drill Sergeant emerges and begins to give orders to the visitor, which sets the scene for their visit to the exhibit. Visitors are even instructed to line up at attention before moving on to the next stage of the journey around the I Am the Guard exhibit.

As visitors move through the space they come to a set of three screens displaying general information about the National Guard. Each screen

plays information on one of three areas of current concentration for the center: Army Guard, Air Guard, or the 20 Year Project. Nanonation’s digital software powers a set of videos and images on each screen which demonstrates how important the Nebraska National Guard is to our state and country.

Museum-goers now have the opportunity to learn about the National Guard, its history, and its significance in Nebraska through digital experiences that complement the physical artifacts.The last experience in the exhibit is a series of three touchscreens that allow users to navigate through information on notable Nebraskans who have served in the Guard and their history (including Warren Buffet). The clickable floating tiles open up an informational card with related text, media, and quizzes.
