Interactive Visitors Information Kiosk
Located the central plaza of the Orientation Center at Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park in a protected shed shelter is an exterior grade kiosk cabinet embellished with graphics for branding and visitor attraction. The kiosk contains a touch screen monitor with animated stories about energy and regional recreational opportunities.
Power from Water: The Taum Sauk Power Plant
The interactive kiosk, located in Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park (JSI), will orient visitors to the existence of the neighboring Taum Sauk Power Plant (TSP). Kiosk users will learn that like the Shut-Ins, the power plant relies on the flowing waters of the Black River. Unlike the Shut-Ins, the power plant cycles river water back upstream after it flows through the powerhouse to generate electricity. After completing the experience, visitors to Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park will have a better understanding how the Black River is used, how a hydroelectric power plant works, its safety features and where the recreation spots are located in the region and the state.
