Using Museums to Popularise Science and Technology

image of Using Museums to Popularise Science and Technology

Museums of all sorts and science centres offer excellent opportunities in popularising science and technology to achieve scientific and technological literacy. Science and technology educators and teachers will particularly find this book useful in determining how they could use those facilities effectively in making teaching science and technology enjoyable and contextual. The museum curators and science centres on the other hand will be able to use the book to assist teachers in their efforts to bring relevance and fun in the learning of these subjects.




The cane and the blackboard, the maths formulae and the exam schedule - all have long been part and parcel of the formal education system all over the world. Replace the cane with fun, the blackboard with computer multi-media, the maths formulae with hands-on exhibits, the exam schedule with a programme schedule - and you have a science centre! Teaching-learning processes in a science centre develop mental imagery through perceptual experience, and cognition through logical thought processes.
