The University of Edinburgh has been awarded one of five Phase 2 UK/US collaborative Science Learning+ projects to work with our UK partners (UCL Knowledge Lab and Glasgow Science Centre) and US partners.

Following a National Science Foundation Phase 1 grant in 2015, this Phase 2 project will be carried out over 36 months and examine how interactive museum exhibits designed to encourage meaningful actions can help young children express, communicate and develop their scientific thinking.

The project is a collaboration between the US, funded by National Science Foundation and led by Judy Brown, Museum of Science, and the UK, funded by the Wellcome Trust. The Co-PIs in the UK are Sara Price, UCL and Sharon MacNab, Glasgow Science Centre.

We will update our Phase 1 project page soon. In the meantime, further information about the project can be found from the NSF project page
