As part of DFCLT’s educational mission, Denise Dennis and Board member Wade Catts met with Glen Muschio, Ph.D. at Drexel University’s state-of-the-art URBN Center to discuss a collaborative digital cultural heritage project. The Drexel team will digitally create three-dimensional, interactive reconstructions of the Dennis Farm as it would have looked 200 and 150 years ago. The technology can then be applied to teaching the history of the farm to elementary and secondary school students.
On a July 11, the Drexel team toured and photographed the Farm including the Prince Perkins Archaeological Site and the ruins of the barn complex, as background research for their digital, 3D reconstructions.
