Evaluation of Large and Small Video Screens of Current Science News in Maryland Science Center

August 28th, 2007 | EVALUATION

This evaluation gathered feedback from adults in response to 18 short format ScienCentral science news videos played on large screens in three areas of Maryland Science Center. Additionally, museum visitors reacted to ideas for museum usage of a handheld device, which would present current science news. The general goals for the evaluation were:
• To determine appeal of large screen video format; • To assess large screen videos with respect to reactions to the science content; • To learn which current science topics visitors are interested in; • To estimate personal impact of viewing large screen videos; and • To explore uses of a handheld device with small format videos in the museum setting.
