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

Very little is known about the experiences of people with learning disabilities in informal learning environments. The Intrinsic Motivation in Science Museums: Learning from and Broadening Participation of Visitors with Learning Disabilities project will describe ways engagement and intrinsic motivation for learning are and are not supported for science museum visitors with learning disabilities. This work will produce guidelines and resources to support inclusive exhibit design.
