Went to the Kennedy Space Center. Speaking of everything educational... The experience was good. It was hard to know what to do first. We took the bus tour of the launch pads and to Apollo/Saturn V. I truly believe was should have started with Atlantis.
They say you can stay at an exhibit from 3 minutes to 3 hours but that’s not entirely true. Once you enter most exhibits there is a pre-
show, show, and then exhibit. This is great for crowd control and educationally its a model of explaining what you see before seeing it, then seeing it and having background. Unlike Sea World however it was long and too much information that was difficult to retain and the entertainment aspect was limited. This was definitely a reflection point for me as a teacher and parent. The things that stick with me were related and even for the people most interested some of the information delivered was too much or not enough of the “right” content as in more about the past and less about the future. More about the space program and less about space or lessons learned from space.
Definitely things to think about when delivering content.
