MOVE 2 LEARN

Move2Learn is an international research-practitioner collaborative project, investigating how interactive museum exhibits can be designed to help young children aged 3-6 years express, communicate, and develop their scientific thinking.

Our project looks at what types of sensory experiences and physical actions are meaningful for developing science ideas, and ways we can encourage these through both the design of interactive exhibits as well as through facilitation, affirming and supporting family interactions that in turn can impact opportunities for all children.
