Museums Make Great Partners for Science Communication: Sharing Successful Programming from PEOPLE 3K
Author(s): Molly Cannon
This is an abstract from the "Global Perspectives on Climate-Human Population Dynamics During the Late Holocene" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
I explore the role of museums as partners for science communication within interdisciplinary research teams. Using examples of curriculum and programming from the Museum of Anthropology’s Educational Outreach, I discuss useful approaches for distilling scientific ideas generated from the Variance Reduction-Safe Operating Space Tradeoff Hypothesis and sharing examples of archaeological visibility of people's choices in investment, risk assessment, and futurities. Our outreach efforts engage a range of museum visitors from youth participating in school group tours to life-long learners, and extend teaching of the past to applying knowledge learned from studying the past to explore contemporary issues.
