Strengthening Collaborations Between Public Television Stations and Science Museums: Lessons From the Human Spark National Outreach Initiative

January 1st, 2010 | RESEARCH

The work described in this white paper was undertaken in direct response to information WNET received from science museums describing certain challenges they face when partnering with public television stations on outreach initiatives. The PBS Series THE HUMAN SPARK provided the perfect opportunity to explore better ways to collaborate on large-scale initiatives, and to learn how these collaborations might provide the framework for attracting new audiences, increasing membership and revenue, and developing long-lasting partnerships.
