Welcome to the First IEEE International Symposium on Cost-Effective Museum Exhibits in Engineering and Applied Science

The First IEEE International Symposium on Cost-Effective Museum Exhibits in Engineering and Applied Science is an international symposium on the creation, development, implementation and dissemination of museum exhibits on engineering, computing, applied science and technology. These exhibits are targeted for audiences of ages 8 to 18. The Symposium will concentrate on development of museum exhibits that, in addition to their intrinsic intellectual and educational value, are modular, replicable, transportable and affordable. 

Sponsored by the IEEE Educational Activities Board, IEEE Hyderabad Section and the B.M. Birla Science Centre, the Symposium is targeted for:

  • Educators in engineering, computing, applied science and technology who are interested in developing cost-effective museum exhibits and exposing students to the museum experience.
  • Directors, curators, and staff of science and technology museums.
  • IEEE volunteers interested in working with local museums on the development and implementation of cost-effective museum exhibits. 

The Symposium will be held 30 November to 2 December 2012 at the B.M. Birla Science Centre in Hyderabad, India.
