Computer Technology Gives Up-Close Look of Deep Rock Tunnel Connector

3/15/2013
 
INDIANAPOLIS- Construction of the Deep Rock Tunnel Connector is well underway and the public can have a first-hand look at the construction progress. Join Citizens on March 17th as a Deep Rock Tunnel, computer-based interactive is unveiled at the Indiana State Museum. The Deep Rock Tunnel Connector is a 7-mile long underground tunnel designed to capture and store millions of gallons of raw sewage, keeping it out of Indianapolis’ rivers and streams. The interactive is designed to present facts about the tunnel in a fun, easy way.

By using touch-screen technology, museum visitors will be able to extend the tunnel boring machine’s grippers, steer the machine and watch as debris is taken out of the tunnel on a conveyor belt. The interactive was written in particular for 3rd through 8th grade visitors and will be on view in the Naturalist’s Lab for the next year.

What:      Deep Rock Tunnel Interactive
When:     Sunday, March 17th from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Where:    Indiana State Museum, 650 W Washington Street
