Summer Session, Week 3
Thursday, June 20, 2013
Today was an exhibit design day with Kaleen.
We focused on how to present information in an exhibit in ways that are both informational and engaging, rather than the usual block of text next to an object behind glass, which is typical in museums.
Every teen was given a concept, design, or prototype to report on, but the report could not just be lecture like text at a museum would be.
Energy tie-ins for many of the inventions/designs/etc were:
- How do we get technologies like these to areas of the world most in need of them? (i.e. the Aquaduct bicycle prototype)
- There is a cost to manufacture, ship
- Often they are expensive, but are needed in the poorest parts of the world
