Museum Exhibits and Science Literacy: Using Technical Writing and Science to Make Connections among Disciplines and Communities
Henning, Teresa B.; Desy, Elizabeth A.
Journal of Effective Teaching, v8 n2 p40-49 2008
This article presents a model for increasing science literacy of P-16 students as well as community members by engaging university students in the design and development of university museum exhibits. While the design of this project was in large part motivated by time and budget constraints faced by the faculty members involved, the positive outcomes of the project with respect to student learning and community involvement suggest that this kind of project is highly valuable and worth repeating.
