Margaret Aiken, Program Developer, Lifelong Learning at the Science Museum of Minnesota and M.A. Museum Education (G’10), invites museum studies students to get involved in Experimonth, a month-long blogging experiment that brings an artist, a scientist, and citizens together to use data and observation to make meaning. Experimonth is a program that was created at the Museum of Life & Science in Durham, NC. Margaret writes, “We are partnering with them to do Experimonth: Identity on our museum’s blogging platform called Science Buzz. The Museum of Life & Science is running a concurrent program called Experimonth: Race on Facebook. Both museums chose these themes to coincide with exhibits that are on the floor. As part of a grant from IMLS we will be comparing the comments, participation, and interactions on the two platforms, Science Buzz and Facebook. Please have a look at www.sciencebuzz.org/experimonth.”
