Into the Deep (En lo Profundo): Summative Evaluation

January 15, 2023 | Exhibitions

In Spring 2022, Monterey Bay Aquarium opened its new exhibition, Into the Deep (En lo Profundo). The 7,000+ square-foot exhibition showcases characteristics of the deep sea and the animals that live there. The exhibition also highlights the deep-sea research being carried out by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), as well as the effect of plastics on deep-sea life. Inform Evaluation & Research carried out a summative evaluation of Into the Deep (En lo Profundo) focused on (1) time spent in the exhibition and thoroughness of use; (2) cognitive outcomes; and (3) affective outcomes.
