Abstract

The problem Technorama faced was that it has so many exhibits that students often try to race through the whole museum, learning a minimal amount. To address this problem, we created a scavenger hunt so that students would focus on a few exhibits and better absorb the information presented. The hunt moves students through four exhibits with three questions to answer at each exhibit. We found that students using the scavenger hunt increased their learning more than other students.
