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.
