Science Centers in the Electronic Age: Are We Doomed?
Russell, Robert L., Ed.; West, Robert M., Ed.
Informal Science Review, n20 Sep-Oct 1996
This issue is a debate-discussion concerning science centers in the electronic age. The articles are based on presentations made at the Science Center World Congress (1st, Heureka, Finland, June 13-17, 1996). The four articles are: (1) "Lessons from Laboratorio dell'Immaginario Scientifico" (Andrea Bandelli); (2) "The Doom-Shaped Thing in the Kitchen: The Future of the Science Center in the 21st Century" (James M. Bradburne); (3) "Science Centres and Museums in the Electronic Age: Are We Doomed?" (Roland Jackson); and (4) "The New Informal Science Education" (Drew Ann Wake). The first and fourth articles claim that the electronic revolution has rendered science centers outdated and anachronistic; the second and third articles argue for the continued relevance of the science center experience.
