About this Website
Structures Around the World
is a collaborative project involving three museums from three different
countries--The Exploratorium (United States), the Explor@dome
(France), and the Labratorio Imaginario
Scientifico di Trieste (Italy). This project was made possible with
generous funding from Unisys as part
of the Science Learning Network.
Each museum will work directly
with one school, exploring these activities and sharing the results with
the other partner schools and museums. If you'd like to share your results,
