Digital Excursion: Digital Dialogue at the Grant Museum
Publication date: Feb 16, 2011 1:24:47 PM
Jun 17, 2013 5:30:00 PM
End: Jun 17, 2013 7:00:00 PM
Location: UCL Grant Museum
In this Digital Excursion, Jack Ashby (Manager, Grant Museum) will offer an introduction to one of the country’s oldest natural history collections. Some of its recently introduced, ground-breaking technology in museum engagement will be showcased.
The Grant Museum of Zoology moved to a more spacious location two years ago, which allowed large parts of its historic collection to be displayed to the public for the first time. The Museum has seized the opportunity to redefine what a university museum can be, positioning itself as a place of experimentation, dialogue and debate; a place not simply for passive exposure but for active engagement – a cultural laboratory for the meeting of minds.
The new Grant Museum employs cutting-edge technology. Ten of its displays have iPads attached asking visitors to get involved in conversations about the role of science in society and how museums should be run. Visitors can respond on the Museum's iPads, on their own smart phones using QR codes or the Tales of Things app, via Twitter using #GrantQR and @UCLmuseums or on their own computers.
Please note: Registration is required for this event.
The Grant Museum is located at 21 University Street, London WC1E 6DE (map).
