Concurrent Session 1A Science exhibitions – making the most of a ‘slow media’ in a fast world

What makes a science exhibition resonate with audiences? Can science exhibitions be agents of change? How do they compliment other media? What potential and limitations do exhibitions have as a ‘slow media’ in a fast world? Communicators involved in developing science exhibitions explore these questions. We encourage the audience to drill and grill the issues to make it a lively discussion about the next generation of science exhibitions.
