The energy and enthusiasm shown by young students walking through the doors of an interactive science museum is difficult to surpass. The excitement and wonder that informal science education generates were instrumental in the author’s decision to create an interactive science museum project. This project provided eighth-grade middle school students with an opportunity to review and synthesize information; collaborate with peers; become specialists in a topic; and engage, encourage, and excite younger students about science.
