The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will create dynamic interpretation and educational content around the history of Growler - the museum's Cold War era submarine. The museum will hire a guest historian to identify compelling, engaging and effective curatorial approaches to the exhibition, driving the development of media content and producing a collection of oral histories. Twenty video-based oral history interviews will be conducted with former crew members. A media producer will be hired to produce exhibition and social media content adapted from the oral histories. These media elements, both video- and audio- based, will be available for immediate use in public and educational programs, exhibits, web-based and digital platforms. On-going formative assessments and summative evaluation will provide visitor feedback for consideration during the exhibition development phases and measure visitor engagement, interest, and understanding.
