A great collaboration recently happened between the facilitators at Sciencenter and The Children’s Museum of Houston. It gave us the chance to collaborate on different strategies, challenges, approaches and solutions for the use of technology while engaging with visitors on the floor. We were able to feed off each other by exchanging viable information and ideas that have helped shape our 21-Tech experiences and what we could do to expand those experiences. What was most beneficial was the sharing that took place. The challenges differed in nature, but through collaboration we found that we shared some of the same types of challenges and that our approaches could actually help one another and offer a better tech experience for visitors. It was great being able to share ideas with another 21-Tech institution and hopefully in the future, we will be able to incorporate more facilities seeking to swap collaborative brains.
