Web 2.0: A New Crossroads for Science Centers

Tomorrow, I’m headed to Philadelpia for the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) annual conference. On Saturday, I’m presenting Web 2.0: A New Crossroads for Science Centers with Bryan Kennedy (Science Museum of Minnesota),  Kevin Von Appen (Ontario Science Centre), and Nina Simon (Museum 2.0).

This our third year looking at issues concerning science centers and Web 2.0.  We’re mixing up the format this year, to make the session more participatory.  We will have a brief presentation with much more time for questions and contributions from those attending. There are some starter questions which Nina posted on her blog. We’re also posting bookmarks on del.icio.us with the tag astcweb2.

On Sunday I’ll be at the ExhibitFiles brunch. We’ll be talking about what we’ve learned in the year and half since the ExhibitFiles community site launched.  There’s more on the ExhibitFiles in our portfolio. Hope to see you in Philadelphia.
