Mauchline Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (CARS) began a collaboration with East Ayrshire Council's Creative Minds Team to design and launch a digital and interactive town trail app.
Working with the pupils of Robert Burns Academy, Skills Development Scotland and Ayrshire Chamber we will develop a series of skills based workshops as part of the Developing the Young Workforce Programme, resulting in the creation and launch of an online app available to all.
An interactive map will be created celebrating the culture and heritage of Mauchline. Within the app we aim to host a number of features including:
- interactive maps
- virtual reality experiences
- geocaching devices
- photographs and other graphics
- gaelic elements
- and much more
In addition to the app, the programme will provide a sustainable resource to support digital literacy and creativity as skills for the workplace.
This project is currently on-going and the provisional date of launching the app will be around December 2024.
