Marian Koshland Science Museum of the National Academy of Sciences
Erika Shugart, National Academy of Sciences, USA

Close-Up: NAS Tour

Opening in April 2004, The Koshland Science Museum features interactive experiences that demonstrate how science provides a tool for decision-making and a guide for national policy on controversial issues. The Museum will feature exhibits on the wonders of science, global climate change, and DNA sequence information.

Pre-conference Tour participants will catch a sneak peek of the museum's exhibits including examples of the integration of scientific data into both physical and digital experiences. A museum staff member will also detail how some of these exhibits have been translated for use on the web.
