This week’s social science snack is about the importance of the museum as a place for life-long learning.
Earlier this year, I co-hosted a Twitter discussion with ten scientists and educators, who shared ideas on how to make science more inclusive. Mindy Weisberger from the American Museum of Natural History reflected on the importance of museums as a place of shared learning for all generations.
“For audiences, stories connect science practice with people.”
Mindy also said museums help to make science accessible. She noted that museums are putting more effort into telling different types of stories from various cultural and social perspectives.
