Objective of the conference: to demonstrate new interactive museum exhibitions using specific Western and Russian examples
The popularization of modern scientific knowledge in the West is mainly engaged in museums of relevant topics. It is there that the most interesting and creative developments are concentrated, which our science museums really lack in order to be interesting to the viewer and meet the goals for which they are created: enlightenment of society, dissemination of knowledge about the past and present of science and technology.
On the first day, experts from Europe, Canada and Israel will touch on the theme of designing expositions for science museums, illustrating their speeches with a large number of examples.

The task of the round table: to create a space for a productive exchange of opinions in the professional community;
Thanks to a variety of technologies, modern science, technology and natural science museums are becoming points of attraction for viewers of all ages. Here are lessons in physics, chemistry, biology. Families come here to spend scientific and educational leisure. Museum workers all the time talk about interactivity, multimedia, theatricality as universal means of improving museum practice in order to popularize scientific knowledge and awaken a person's inherent, but not always shown curiosity.
However, all of these means are not effective without creative thought, which makes all both new and old technologies work for the ultimate goal - to educate the population. Thinking creatively can be taught. You just need to show how it's done.
It is assumed that the first part of the round table will consider successful examples of popular science projects implemented on the basis of Russian museums. Particular emphasis in the presentations of the participants will be placed on the process of developing a project idea. If possible, the main approaches used today in Russian practice will be isolated, analyzed and systematized, and they will be assessed by international experts.
At the second part of the round table, the present museum workers, teachers, artists, and all those involved in the popularization of scientific knowledge will have the opportunity to discuss their new projects with colleagues and experts, test them for strength and effectiveness, and receive professional advice.
Participants and attendance at the round table will be: invited specialists, science artists (exhibitors) who work for science museums, museum practitioners from different cities of Russia, including participants in the Dynasty Foundation competition “Science Museum in the 21st Century”, experts and teachers of additional education, representatives of companies that are engaged in the creation of objects and expositions for technical and natural science museums, designers, exhibition artists, journalists, etc.
Applications for presentations at the first part of the round table (5-7 minutes) and consideration of their example for the second are accepted from representatives of Russian museums and authors of scientific and popularization projects at firstname.lastname@example.org (conference curator - Olga Shishko).
