Cells to Selfis a multiyear initiative encompassing four projects funded by the National Science Foundation. Each project not only develops new experiences for museum visitors, but also evaluates the effectiveness of prototype exhibits to better understand how visitors engage with and learn at these exhibits.
The Center will learn how to engineer the physical structures and interactions of living cells. The Exploratorium's role is to engage the public with cellular engineering research through exhibits and demonstrations.
The goal of Living Liquid was to discover ways to design exhibits that allow visitors to explore and ask questions about scientific data sets, through interactive data visualizations about marine life.
Cells to Self is a multiyear initiative encompassing both exhibit development and museum visitor research projects. Cells to Self is made possible through the generous support of the Troy and Leslie Daniels Fund for Life Sciences and from Genentech, the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, and the National Science Foundation.
