Conference aim: to show the new interactive museum displays by concrete western and Russian examples.
The popularization of the contemporary scientific knowledge is, in the West, mostly the task for the museums of the relevant subject area. That's where the most interesting and creative projects concentrate, which our science museums lack very much to be attractive for the audience and answer that goals for which they were created: society enlightenment and spread of knowledge of science and engineering past and present.
On the first day the specialists from Europe, Canada and Israel will touch on the subject science museums displays' projecting, illustrating their lectures by many examples.
Round table aim: to create a space for productive opinion exchange in professional community.
Due to various technologies contemporary scientific and technical and natural science museums become attractive for people of all ages. Lessons of physics, chemistry and biology also take place here. Families attend these museums to combine leisure and learning. Museum staff often speak of interactivity, multimedia and theater elements as of universal means of museum practice perfection (to make scientific knowledge accessible to public and encourage natural human curiosity, which is not always evident).
However all means mentioned above are not effective without a creative mind, which makes both new and old technologies work for a long run objective - to educate the population. It is possible to teach how to be creative. You just have to show how to do it.
