The goal of this project was to research and design methods to enhance the visibility of Nantucket’s Old Mill. The project team worked with the Nantucket Historical Association to evaluate the engineering principles that could be conveyed through interactive, age appropriate museum exhibits at the site. We also developed recommendations for signage around the mill, as well as social media graphics that can be used to promote the Old Mill online. Our final deliverables include this final report, four interactive museum exhibits focusing on simple machines in the Old Mill, final recommendations, and supplemental resources to aid in the use of the interactive exhibits such as instructional panels, teacher’s guides, and an interactive booklet.
