The National Museum of Science and Industry in London sponsored this project to create a series of prototype exhibits on world energy use. The students researched world energy use, museum exhibit design, and interviewing techniques. Museum visitors were interviewed to determine their knowledge of energy use. This information was used to develop a prototype exhibit in the form of a web page. The prototype then underwent a process of revision and summative evaluation before being presented to the museum staff.
