Title:

    Moving Clocks and Bending Space: A Learning/Interactive Museum Environment (LIME)

Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    The process of creating a successful exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History involves a dialogue between those who research the science, those who create the content’s presentation and the audience. This panel explores creation and evaluation of two non-traditional exhibits (Moving Clocks and You Bend Space-Time) created for the current Einstein exhibition. The panel describes the scientific and philosophical ideas that fueled their conception, explains the design and technological choices, and examines how educational media experiences are evaluated.
