Project

FEAST

FEAST built on the success of another European project, PILOTS, that worked towards the professionalization of explainers in science centres and museums. This time, participants focussed on a specific target audience: parents. Their role as learning catalysts was explored and a method drawn up to develop activities fostering their involvement as confident and knowledgeable science educators of their children.
