Log Number: CAGML-247735-OMLS-20
Responding to the COVID-19 crisis, the Connecticut Science Center will create a digital infrastructure and body of content for use by school districts, families, and the public. The multi-faceted project will make virtual learning a permanent part of the museum's infrastructure. A new position of multimedia specialist will prepare, test, and operate multi-media equipment for virtual classrooms and outreach programming, as well as assist with technical support of in-house productions. The creation of a new app will enable an enhanced onsite experience for visitors and additional engagement when offsite. The museum will also update its exhibits to reflect content on virology and epidemiology and create programs that address the deep need for understanding of immunology, COVID-19, and the threat of other pandemics. The project will also include the creation of a digital library of resources and professional development for teachers.
