Gizmo is helping to design, value engineer, construct, and install an exciting new exhibit about life rescue and helicopters for the Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum in Salt Lake City, Utah. The exhibit, which is being underwritten by Intermountain Health Providers, will feature a hospital, a command center, and a decommissioned helicopter to set-up different rescue scenarios and engage visitors in learning about how each of these components work together to perform life saving rescues in the mountains of Utah. Located on the roof of the museum, the exhibit will include a roof structure to protect the helicopter from the elements for year round access and durability, and a custom-made hospital structure that will house all of the medical scenarios and life saving practices. Gizmo is developing many hands-on exhibits and multi-media experiences, including an interactive that allows visitors to send a small scale helicopter model into flight using a hand crank, answering and dispatching emergency calls from the command center to the hospital and the chopper, scrubbing up and getting dressed for work as doctors and in-flight nurses, diagnosing and performing triage operations, using mock X-ray equipment, and performing first aid on 3-D “patients” in the chopper and at the hospital. The exhibit will open permanently in August 2013. Gizmo is planning an opening event in conjunction with the Western Museum Association’s conference in Salt Lake City in October 2013.
