2021 Poster - Fostering Public Participation in Science Research Inside Museums

December 5, 2021 | Public Programs, Exhibitions

This poster was presented at the 2021 NSF AISL Awardee Meeting.

The project's goals are to:

  • Create “data-catcher” exhibits that provide exciting learning experiences about cooperation while allowing visitors to contribute to research in social science.
  • Build public awareness of the methods of social science.
  • Generate valid data for academic research.
  • Assess the impact of public participation in scientific research (PPSR) on visitors’ interest, engagement, and understanding.
