Abstract

The project team developed exhibit extensions for the London Science Museum's outreach program associated with the hands-on gallery, Launch Pad. The team researched effective extensions, met with Science Museum staff, designed prototypes, and evaluated these prototypes with museum staff, schoolteachers, and students. Based on the evaluations, the team adjusted the prototypes to complete exhibit extensions that complemented classroom lesson plans while allowing teachers to demonstrate scientific principles with confidence and increasing students' interest and knowledge in science.
