The Museum of Science, Boston, will use universal design principles to develop and create the accessible, immersive exhibition, “Adventure! Exploring With Technology.” The museum will design the exhibit to represent a realistic Arctic environment. The exhibit will include interactive opportunities for visitors to engage with a range of technologies employed by scientists, researchers, and explorers. Working closely with an accessibility advisory committee as well as museum visitors with a wide range of ability levels, the museum will test universal design strategies to measure their effectiveness. The museum will conduct evaluation to ensure that visitors can physically interact with the space, cognitively engage with materials, and socially interact with one another. The project team will share a summative evaluation report and white paper that documents the project learnings.
