TING exhibition also wins ASTC prize

#EcsiteAwards winner 2015: Norsk Teknisk Museum for TING exhibition

TING is “a participatory, immersive exhibition experience for exploring the complex relationships between technology and democracy.” Put together by the Norsk Teknisk Museum (Oslo, Norway), it already won the first edition of the Mariano Gago Ecsite Awards last June and has now received a Roy L. Shafer Leading Edge Award for visitor experience (large institution) from ASTC, the Association of Science-Technology Centers.

The Norsk Teknisk Museum team will be receiving their prize alongside two other ASTC-member institutions and three science museum professionals on Monday 19 October at the ASTC conference in Montreal, Canada.
