Abstract

This report, prepared for the Maria Mitchell Association, explored ways to update the existing exhibits and increase kindergarten through fifth grade visitation to the Natural Science Museum. The current exhibits were evaluated based on content and aspects of exhibit design. We developed and modified six interactive prototypes regarding erosion and bird adaptations. By working together with local schools, we determined key obstacles preventing class visitation. Through our analysis of surveys, observations, and interviews we developed recommendations for the Association.
