Older science museums tended to concentrate on static displays of objects related to natural history paleontology geology , industry and industrial machinery, etc. Modern trends in museology have broadened the range of subject matter and introduced many interactive exhibits. Many if not most modern science museums - which increasingly refer to themselves as 'science centres' or 'discovery centres' - also put much weight on technology "...The public museum as understood today is a collection of specimens and other objects of interest to the scholar, the man of science as well as the more casual visitor, arranged and displayed in accordance with the scientific method. In its original sense, the term 'museum' meant a spot dedicated to the muses - 'a place where man's mind could attain a mood of aloofness above everyday affairs.'" — Museum of Jurassic Technology As early as the Renaissance, many aristocrats collected curiosities for display to their friends.

    zSB(3,3) Many cities have created impressive high-stimulus science "playgrounds", with lots of interactive fun for kids and they just may learn a thing or two, as well. Science museums are great places for out-of-towners to visit, and lots of fun for locals, too.
    Tips for Visiting Science Museums:
    • If you'll visit a science museum more than once a year, consider an annual membership, which often includes admission to a whole network of science museums in other cities, too. Allow extra time and money! to visit the gifts stores that are a feature of most science museums. These gift stores are a wonderful source of books and toys that mix education and fun. Most gift stores offer discounts to members sometimes considerable. Allow even more extra time to have a lunch break during your visit to a science museum. You might find a restaurant right at the museum; otherwise, get a hand-stamp and return later. Your kids will be refreshed after a break.

    How green does your garden grow?
    October 5th, 2010 - Posted in Featured Moving from the Convention Center to the Bishop Museum, ASTC Annual Conference attendees had an opportunity to get outdoors and dig in the dirt. Held on October 4, Involving the Community in Environmental Issues: A Hands-On Garden Workshop led participants through a garden exploration that demonstrated how gardening outreach programs can help engage underserved local communities in the global conversation on critical environmental issues. The session began with participants collecting soil samples from around the museum grounds. With help from Peter Van Dyke, manager of the Bishop Museums Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden, they then tested the soils pH levels, a procedure that can help reveal human-caused environmental impacts, such as acid rain. Following the activity, presenters from theCommunities of Learning for Urban Environments and Science (CLUES) project shared their experiences in developing family gardening programs at their museums. CLUES is a grant-funded collaboration between the New Jersey Academy for Aquatic Sciences (inCamden) and the Franklin Institute, the Philadelphia Zoo, and the Academy of Natural Sciences (all in Philadelphia),which focuses on teaching science to families in communities of the PhiladelphiaCamden region. Participants also received an outline of a family outdoor workshop to use at their own science centers.
