Community Science Workshops and Shared Authorship of Space: Interview with Emilyn Green
MARCH 18, 2015
There are lots of great science museum resources, but not where these kids can walk after school. We received two rounds of NSF funding in the 1990s to expand. We received NSF funding for three years and then it cut off. For example, the Exploratorium is an extraordinarily participatory museum, but it''s not nearly as participatory as a Community Science Workshop. Any big museum has barriers and limitations to full community ownership.
