Museums of all sorts and science centres offer excellent opportunities in popularising science and technology to achieve scientific and technological literacy. Science and technology educators and teachers will particularly find this book useful in determining how they could use those facilities effectively in making teaching science and technology enjoyable and contextual. The museum curators and science centres on the other hand will be able to use the book to assist teachers in their efforts to bring relevance and fun in the learning of these subjects.



Real vs Virtual Visits: Issues for Science Centres

More and more science centres around the world are issuing an invitation for people of all ages to enter the fascinating world of science and technology through their computer. Science centres are discovering that the Internet - in particular, the World Wide Web - provides a rapidly escalating opportunity to reach a wider audience, thereby promoting a greater public understanding and appreciation of science and technology and their impact on our everyday lives. The capacity of web browsing software to integrate text, images and sounds has attracted many science centres to the idea of establishing a presence on the web.
