Too Small to See Summative Evaluation Report

December 1st, 2007 | EVALUATION

Too Small to See is a 5,000 square-foot interactive traveling museum exhibition designed to provide hands-on nanotechnology science education to youth age 8 to 13 and adults. It debuted at Disney's Epcot and will reach over three million people during a five-year US tour. This evaluation examines the exhibition’s outcomes and impact on increasing visitors’ awareness of, interest in, engagement with, and understanding of nanoscale science, engineering, and technology. An overarching goal is to document the project’s contribution to the portfolio of federally funded Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) projects through Informal Science Education (ISE). A second goal is to provide information for professionals in the NISE Network (Nanoscale Informal Science Education) funded by NSF’s Nanoscale Science and Engineering Education (NSEE) program. The Pre-Post Interview Protocol used in this study is included in this document.
