California Science Center

For the first few episodes of this podcast, we'll take you behind the scenes of the California Science Center to meet some of the people who design and develop exhibits.

Imagine for a minute that you're visiting a science center or a museum. You're looking at an exhibit and… you probably have questions. Good thing there's some text posted nearby to help explain what's going on.

These bits of interpretive text are called exhibit labels, and you can find them all over museums. If you've been to a museum, you've read a label. Do you ever wonder who writes them?

In this episode, we talk to Jennifer Lawrence, the senior exhibit developer at the California Science Center whose job it is to write pretty much everything you read while looking at and playing with our exhibits.
