Zane State College ATP students will collaborate with the Zanesville-Muskingum County Chamber of Commerce, Zanesville Public Service Commission and local historians to create an interactive downtown walking tour in order to stimulate both local and outside tourism and to promote engagement with local youth. Students will use an existing map, advice from community partners, and their own research to decide what to include on the interactive walking tour. Once research is completed, students will download information into the Munzee app and place coordinating scan codes at each location.
The central focus of the project is to engage the community, especially youth, in the history within a ten-block walking distance of the city center in order to foster pride, knowledge, and connection with the region’s heritage. Currently, the designated area is often bypassed and overlooked by locals and tourists alike as they choose to explore outside the community with competing tourist attractions and events. ATP students plan to establish an energizing and interesting walk in the city in order to encourage community growth and pride.
