Learning

We talk about engagement a lot in our work, it is at the heart of everything that we do and we use it to describe and measure the value and benefit of our experiences. However, it can be a hard word to define. Beth Hawkins explores ‘what exactly do we mean when we talk about engagement?’.

Jess Sashaw shares the development of our maths themed image banks and how we’ve brought to life some of the stories behind objects in our collection. She discusses how they help promote discussion, develop confidence and ownership and how they have help relate maths to everyday life.

Laura Bootland, Interpretation Developer at the National Railway Museum, and the Project Lead for the Brass, Steel and Fire exhibition, shares how the science capital research informed the development of the temporary exhibition.

Following the success of our online hands-on activities, we want to further promote them to as wide an audience as possible. In the first of two posts, Lauren Ding, Digital Editor, Learning for the Science Museum Group, shares why we chose to develop videos.

How can we build a ‘community of good practice’? This March we launched the Manchester hub of the Science Museum Group Academy, and announced our ‘Science Capital in Practice’ programme, in collaboration with the UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres (ASDC).
