Description

Each year, millions of people visit science museums and children’s museums and are treated to a display of exhibits demonstrating scientific principles from physics, chemistry, biology, geology, astronomy, and so on.  In this course, we will travel to a varietyof museums, including the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, the St. Louis Science Center, and the Field Museum of Natural History (among others) to learn about how people of all ages can learn about science in fun and informal settings.  In addition to the museum visits, you will design an exhibit of your own, some of which may become part of Millikin’s science outreach programs. This course will include a five-day, four night trip to the museums and the travel fee for the course will be $500.  This course satisfies the Natural Science with Laboratory requirement for graduation.
