Abstract

Incorporating engineering objects into educational outreach programs is a proven means to excite students about transport engineering. Grounded in theories of museum education and object-based learning, we offer means to help the London Transport Museum (LTM) achieve this mission: narratives on various disciplines of transport engineering, an engineering object catalog, and “toolkits” for using objects in engineering education programs. These resources and suggestions for acquiring new engineering objects are designed to enhance current and future program development.
