The Exhibit Interpretation Program offers hands-on, inquiry-based learning experiences for Museum visitors throughout the Exhibit Halls. Our goal is to engage visitors in investigations that encourage them to develop the skills of scientific inquiry, engineering design, and mathematics. Volunteers in the Exhibit Interpretation Program help support a variety of programs within the department. For starters, volunteers may find themselves guiding visitors as they examine fossils or animal skulls, investigate the properties of sound, explore invisible light with an infrared camera, or use a portable ultrasound. Volunteers may also assist school groups with field-trip activities for our Exhibit Investigations program, a program that provides teachers with an opportunity to request a themed exploration of an exhibit area.
