A message from the Museum of Science:
The Museum of Science needs your help in accessibility-related exhibit evaluation! We are currently gathering feedback about several of our new exhibits in order to improve the museum experience for visitors with disabilities. Scheduled for this testing are exhibits about energy conservation, the science of Pixar, and health & human biology.
We are seeking visitors with a range of disabilities (including, but not limited to, sensory, physical, and cognitive disabilities) to help us test these prototypes. Interested participants will come to the Museum of Science, interact with several different exhibit components, and give feedback and suggestions to exhibit developers and members of the Research and Evaluation department. This feedback will be integrated into the components as they undergo revisions. We have found that this type of testing improves the exhibits for not only visitors with disabilities, but for all of our visitors.
Testing will take place from August 11-21, 2012. You can come to the Museum for a 1-2 hour time slot on any day during that time, including weekend days. Feel free to bring guests, especially people who would normally visit the Museum with you. Some of the exhibits are group activities. After the testing, you are welcome to explore the rest of the exhibit halls on your own. Parking and admission will also be free for you and your visiting group members. ASL interpretation will be provided for participants if requested.
If you are interested, please contact Catherine Lussenhop at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-589-4435 with the following information:
- Description of disability (your own or your group members')
- Description of your group (How many people? Approximate ages?)
- When you would prefer to visit (Indicate 1-2 hour time block between August 11-21)
- Any other requests or important information we should know
