This train-the-trainer workshop will prepare participants to lead workshops on experimental STEM learning by doing hands-on experiments. Work in a small team with other educators to build models and understand how to raise curiosity and build creative and critical thinking skills in students.

Leave the workshop with dozens of engaging hands-on activities that teach a wide spectrum of physical sciences and a network of supportive educators. Understand and reflect on the principles of facilitation that lead to meaningful learning processes for pedagogues and students.

2 April 2017 - 3 September 2017
Museon The Hague
Netherlands
Museon Move & Play

This exhibition won’t just get you moving. It will make you want to kick, jump, shout, and dance about!

Move and Play! challenges visitors to compete and cooperate, to play and have fun together. As they move — sometimes singly, sometimes in teams — visitors experiment with the latest technology and gain creative insights. The 20 interactive exhibits also invite visitors to learn about the impact of physical exercise on their own bodies: at each unit they learn which senses and cognitive processes are being put to the test, and what physical skills they are developing.

The world population is growing, technology is advancing at lightning speed, we are all travelling more and most of us are almost permanently online. All this means that we are more and more one world. At the same time, we are increasingly aware of our influence on nature and climate, and of the great importance of our natural world. The United Nations is keen to use sustainable solutions to tackle the greatest global challenges. To do this, it has formulated 17 Sustainable Development Goals that it aims to achieve by 2030.

Maths Exhibit Prototyping Seminar

Five years after hosting an Exhibit Prototyping Conference, we were delighted to once again provide the venue for another exhibit development event. This time the interactive exhibits were based around a common theme - Maths. We were joined by representatives from ten science centres in Norway and had two busy days, building, testing, tinkering and developing ideas into great exhibits. Alongside the prototyping there were presentations and discussions on elements that make up a good interactive exhibit, and how to achieve best practices in exhibit design, development and evaluation.
