LunchTIME Presentation zSpace/Grand Seiko 3D Learning
Pack a lunch and join the National Watch and Clock Museum for its Lunch “TIME” presentation. The National Watch & Clock Museum recently acquired a revolutionary horological workstation for demonstration to visitors. The system utilizes Grand Seiko’s advanced 3D virtual reality watch engineering software and is equipped with a user-friendly zSpace hardware interface specially designed for K-12 STEM education. The acquisition of two of these units has been made possible by a generous grant funded by the Dart Foundation, The Glatfelter Agency and an in-kind donation by Grand Seiko, who launched this next-generation watchmaking technology at the Seiko Museum in Tokyo and via an extensive promotional tour across the United States last fall.
By special license this state of the art workstation has now come home to the National Watch & Clock Museum as the highlight of an NAWCC-sponsored program to introduce students and future watchmakers to the next generation of watchmaking design technology. Museum Director Noel Poirier will introduce attendees to this new technology and will discuss how the museum may use it in the future.
The Museum invites the public to join in a casual conversation and understanding of the story behind these pieces. “We wanted to provide a more intimate opportunity for people to discover objects from the Museum collection, or learn about important and interesting aspects of the history of time and timekeeping. We thought a brown bag lunch would be the perfect fit,” explains Poirier.
Lunch “TIME” is a complimentary educational program held from 12-1 p.m. and will continue every other month. The next program is scheduled for August 8.
