Sparks Handbook for participatory activities

The Sparks Handbook intends to convey important guidelines for each of the museums, science centres and organisations hosting the Sparks'Exhibition "Beyond the Lab: The DIY science revolution" but its scope is much wider: Any science engagement organisation can profit of these rich material curated by Copernicus Science Centre and WILA Bonn Science Shop. You will find an overview of the exhibition, refresh the Responsible Research and Innovation scope of every step we are taking and get a deep insight on how to run innovative participatory activities.

Developed in 2016 as part of the Sparks project.
