Digital inquiry and controversy mapping: Re-innovating the interactive science centre

As many of today’s science centres wish to foster public engagement with current research, so too are many schools promoting student engagement with so-called socioscientific issues. Aiming to creatively combine these concerns, the Universeum is currently collaborating to launch controversy mapping as an activity for upper secondary school students. Controversy mapping tasks groups of students with gathering, analyzing and displaying large amounts of information pertaining to a technoscientific controversy of their choice on a website of their own design. During the session people helping to bring controversy mapping to the Universeum will discuss and demonstrate the promise of digital inquiry for re-innovating the science centre.
