Summer Exploration Guild

by Aiona

As Explainers we get lots and lots of opportunities to explore interesting materials in interesting ways, some of which we document and share with each other through this blog. In an effort to experiment with ways to extend these opportunities to museum educators throughout the larger Exploratorium community I’ve just launched a new project called the Summer Exploration Guild. The plan is to invite educators from various museums, including ours, to spend two weeks collectively gathering ideas for ways to explore a given topic or object. We’re currently half way through out exploration of bubbles, and I personally have been having lots of fun blowing all kinds of bubbles, including tiny bubbles, giant bubbles, cubic bubbles, and antibubbles. Come Explore the Summer Exploration Guild Blog, and if you’re an Explainer or museum educator please feel free to join in. Here’s a photo of my proudest bubble moment so far:
