The Royal Air Force Museum sought to develop an exhibit and presentation to explain the topic of metal fatigue in terms that twelve-year-old children could understand. Working from interviews, site visits, and Britain's National Curriculum, an exhibit and presentation were created incorporating aspects of successful exhibit design with topics covered in the education curriculum. The exhibit and presentation were tested with museum experts and the target audience, and modified to develop the best products for the RAF Museum.
