About A-Lab

In April 2018, HealthLit4Kids and the Peter Underwood Centre for Educational Attainment at UTas organised an interactive exhibition of some of the artefacts from the HealthLit4Kids pilot study at Blackmans Bay Primary School. The exhibition featured students work alongside some interactive activities specially developed for the Underwood Centre's 'A-Lab' space.

The A-Lab's technological facilities including VR headsets, an immersive 360 degrees video lab and a large touchscreen monitor, enabled HealthLit4Kids to transform some of the Blackmans Bay Primary School artefacts into interactive games and activities for visitors.

Alongside traditional art activities such as colouring-in fruit and vegetables for a large 'Eat A Rainbow' and making 'Cartons of Calm', visitors could explore the vegetable garden at Blackmans Bay Primary on the 360 degree screen, watch videos on different aspects of health literacy, and make a 'mandala' plate full of healthy food.
