In 2013, The Pod began working on a project aimed at capturing the history and culture of one of the NRL’s proudest clubs, the Penrith Panthers. Four massive touch screens, installed in the newly built museum space at the clubs headquarters in Penrith, provide visitors with the opportunity to explore, in depth, a wide range of Panthers’ related content. Completed in August 2014, each interactive provides insight into four different aspects of the club.
‘Our Club’ provides visitors with an understanding of the Panthers’ identity and culture. The content here illustrates their growth and historical relevance within the NRL landscape.
‘Our Greatest’ provides a comprehensive list of every Penrith player, past and present, and their achievements as a Panther. Find out how many games a player featured in, how many points they scored and their accomplishments as one of the Mountain Men.
‘Our Scrapbook’ is an extensive collection of Panther history, showcasing newspaper stories, memorabilia and television coverage from throughout the Panthers’ existence.
Penrith District has always had a thriving junior competition, providing a platform for young players to showcase and develop their skills. ‘Our Juniors’ provides an inside look at each of the junior clubs in the Penrith District.
