Workshop session B and workshop session C
The human brain is forever fascinating and most visitors in science centres find the subject extremely interesting. In this workshop we will hear the experience of science centers who are preparing to open, have recently opened or have long experience of brain exhibition or related programs.
Mariana Back, Development Leader at MegaMind/ NATIONAL MUSEUM OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY in Stockholm, will share some thoughts from working with that recently opened exhibition. When shaping the concept for MegaMind, it was essential that the theme of the exhibition – the creative mind - should be visible in the architecture.The design at large is based on a conceptual model of how the brain functions. Does this have an effect on how visitors experience the exhibition? How can we best support knowledge about the plasticity of the brain?
Following the presentations, participants will discuss and share their ideas and thoughts on the topic.
