Klein, Christine; Corse, Jean; Grigsby, Vivian; Hardin, Sharonica; Ward, Cheryl
The distinction between formal education and museums and science centers has become less obvious over time as museums meet more needs of schools. This study examines two different cultures in the form of the school/museum partnership. The objective of the study was to identify the points at which two institutions, schools and museums, could merge and support each other. The study used grounded theory methodology and focused on observations of instances. (Contains 10 references.) (YDS)
