‘Big Ideas, Tiny Museum’: Science Friday Video on MICRO | #museum @scifri @TheMicromuseums

Cool to see MICRO on the Science Friday blog – I curated their Smallest Mollusk Museum at the World Maker Faire back in 2016 🙂 so glad to see their project continue to succeed!

Imagine you’re walking through the airport on your way to a flight. You’re navigating with your luggage, taking a leisurely stroll to your gate, when you suddenly come across an odd-looking, six-foot tall, refrigerator-sized box. As you approach, you realize it contains an entire museum’s worth of information about mollusks. Amanda Schochet, a computational ecologist, who makes such museums, hopes that this scenario becomes much more common in the future.

Read more here, and watch:

By shrinking an entire museum into a 6 foot tall modular design, MICRO hopes that these tiny exhibits can go in all sorts of public areas, like shopping malls, waiting rooms, airports, and parks where they can integrate science and learning into people’s day-to-day lives.
