Gaia Workshop and demonstration of Vesterål model

24 May 2024

This week, the Gaia Vesterålen team has been working together in Sortland on the completion of a new prototype of the Vesterål model.

The Vesterål model

The latest version The Vesterål model is immediately ready to be shown to the public. This week, the team from Museum Nord, Sintef and Deadline Media have been working on the final touches with testing and correcting errors.

In addition, the model has been demonstrated to various target groups: primary schools, secondary schools, the tourism industry and local politicians.

From these, we have received a lot of useful feedback on how we should continue to work with the development of the model.
