Abstract : This research was conducted to develop facility information for a hands-on exhibit and science center facility. The development of this information uses background and case studies of existing science centers proposed facilities. Information gathered from site visits to five national science centers shows current state of the art technologies, techniques, or products that relate to science center environments. Overall theme and image, integrated design features, and visual stimulation that a science center should offer are addressed and presented. This research will be used by the National Science Center Task Force at Fort Gordon, GA during design of the new Discovery Center. Science centers, museums, and/or art galleries will also find this report useful in determining or analyzing needs and requirements.
