Supporting Children’s Museums as People-Centered Environments
The ACM works with more than 400 member organisations located in 48 U.S. states and twenty countries, leveraging the collective knowledge of children’s museums through convening, sharing, and dissemination. ACM’s primary focus is working with and on behalf of these members, ensuring that all ACM activities enrich and advance the community.
Hume will produce content that introduces a new perspective (cognitive neuroscience) to a content area (architecture) that children’s museum professionals may not consider in their effort to design more effective spaces.
By facilitating the sectors pivot towards an evidence base, this project will refocus the purpose of environments designed for children towards behavioural and cognitive outputs that support child development, caregiver-child interaction, and group cohesion.
