Lessons to learn from Thai museum

Otago Museum marketing and development co-ordinator Juliet Pierce is expecting to gain further insights into museum-based science education for young people through a staff exchange trip to the National Science Museum of Thailand in Bangkok.

Ms Pierce left Dunedin at the weekend on a two-week trip to the Bangkok facility.

Her visit includes a week observing and taking part in an outreach visit by museum staff to a regional area outside the Thai capital.

This was a "great opportunity" to learn more about the Thai museum's expertise in running lively, interactive science shows for youngsters, she said.
