School Science and Mathematics, v100 n3 p128-38 Mar 2000

Presents a study in which representations were provided by robotic models in a museum, preserved animals in a museum, and preserved animals borrowed from a museum and presented in a school setting. Indicates significant differences depending upon the setting. (Contains 17 references.) (Author/ASK)
