Interactive PPE Drag & Drop Quiz System

This self-contained, interactive, drag and drop PPE gear quiz enables students to equip a mine worker with the proper gear necessary to work in 4 environments: underground, mill building, surface mine summer, and surface mine winter. It was created through a partnership between Prince William Sound College and Geophysical Institute Design Services team with University of Alaska Fairbanks: Hannah Foss (Lead Illustrator), Ryan Bateman (Programmer), and Eric Cater (Programmer), and Molly Putman (Illustrator).
