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, please email us at: webteam@exploratorium.edu
