Scale Ladders Design Based Research Study (2007)

Front-end evaluation report for the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network.

DESCRIPTION

A series of interview studies was conducted to determine how museum visitors interpret scale ladders that focus on the nanoscale. These studies look at different versions of an example scale ladder in order to: a.) Iteratively develop a scale ladder that may be used by other informal science institutions. b.) Formulate guidelines to inform the design and use of other scale ladders.
