How to run a mobile heritage science event

A new toolkit created to support museums and heritage sites to run mobile science events that bring the science of preservation to life


Much of the science happening to preserve our heritage is done behind closed doors and can be seen by the public as inaccessible. It’s important to share with the public this huge effort done by conservation teams and scientists to overcome the potential threats to our heritage.

SEAHA Centre for Doctoral Training has created a toolkit to support museums and heritage sites running mobile science engagement events to help bring this science out into the open and to support visitor engagement with science, on-the-ground. The toolkit covers all the essentials of why you might think about running a mobile heritage science engagement event, what to think about when planning it, and how to build in evaluation.
