Abstract

The London Transport Museum’s Inspire program seeks to excite students about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through the incorporation of objects in engineering presentations. We have reviewed research in object-based learning, cataloging, and outreach programming, and have conducted interviews with museum staff and engineers. In response, we developed an artefact library of over ninety transportation objects and their backgrounds, and a training program designed to help engineers better engage students in STEM related discussions.
