Sample text

We distinguish between the provision of a situation, which is an object, the development of a context, which the visitor creates by actively engaging with an object, and a narrative, where the visitor links a context to some ongoing aspect of their lives. To be most educationally effective, the situations provided must be as strongly linked to the narratives of ‘the public’ as possible. We then discuss the extent, scope and limitations of the various types of situation that are provided in informal science and technology education: books, newspapers and magazines, television, live shows and lectures, museums and interactive science and technology centres.

It is the latter investigation (Rutherford 1995) which is used as the source of the examples and exemplars in this paper. For that reason, the content area running through the text is ‘light and colour’. Other areas could as appropriately have been used. The outcomes of this investigation, when combined with our previous work in the area of models (Boulter and Gilbert 1996), led us to conduct a broad enquiry into the role of models in scientific explanations. This study drew on a diverse literature, including that of the history and philosophy of science, as well as that of cognitive and social psychology.
