This book describes an National Science Foundation–funded project to explore the effects of incorporating inquiry- and narrative-based video clips into interactive science museum exhibits in order to make them more personally meaningful for visitors. It covers creating the videos and evaluating visitor responses, and draws lessons for creating engaging and compelling exhibit experiences. The enclosed DVD includes the video clips used in the analysis.
