NEW Hands-on Smart Cart in Edison Ford Museum
September 26, 2012
The new hands-on Smart Cart in the Edison Ford Museum provides all ages with a chance to learn more about the science and history of artifacts from the Museum’s large education collection, and it is already a hit with visitors, curators and educators.
Our Smart Carts are brightly colored yellow with big handprints on them to encourage hands-on exploration and discovery. Throughout the day, site historians and docents move the Smart Cart through the Museum Galleries demonstrating and engaging visitors to learn more about a variety of artifacts and how they work including light bulbs, wax cylinder, diamond disc records and botanical specimens that were only a few of the Edison and Ford inventions.
Our initial reactions of visitors to this new project have been very enthusiastic, so expect to see more Smart Carts and changing artifacts throughout the future.
