The results of our 2009 survey on computer-based exhibits is now available on the Open Exhibits website. This is the second year of the survey, and this year, we received 150 responses from individuals representing 110 museums, science centers, design firms, and educational organizations.The results can be filtered by the size of the institution and by the institutions’ focus on informal science education. The results from our 2008 survey are still available if you want to compare responses.
Open Exhibits is a planned open source initiative for informal science education. The software will be developed in Adobe Flash and Flex and include support for multitouch and multiuser exhibits. You can learn more about the project on the Open Exhibits website. Also, we encourage you to join our Open Exhibits Facebook group.
