Case Study on youth engagement published

Youth Engagement project at the Science Museum

Engaging teenagers at the Science Museum

I developed and led a text-writing workshop for teenagers in March, as part of a Science Museum-run project to engage young people in the new Who Am I? gallery.

The whole experience was inspiring – it was a project that felt genuine and experimental, perhaps both to participants and leaders. So, with the help of the project champions Micol Molinari and Raphael Chanay, I wrote a case study for GEM (Group for Education in Museums) of which I’m a member,  and it’s just come out.

GEM Case Studies are intended to be frank and so the write-up covers the hitches as well as the triumphs. But as a model for engaging this sometimes-challenging audience,  I thought the project shone.
