The Exploratorium’s (San Francisco) permanent collections emphasize physics and a unique version of psychobiology. Students serve as explainers for the exhibits and visitors can observe the making of exhibits onsite.
Special exhibits have offered over-the-Internet collaboration multimedia projects, such as designing a virtual city and exchange of data with NASA’s airborne observatory. The Exploratorium has school, industry and museum partners across the US. The Web site also displays a what’s new listing with excellent links.
The Exploratorium museum, one of the first to mount online exhibits, has created an area for parents and kids to learn together.
