Planning and Designing Education Exhibits for Your Attraction

Course Description

This course leads you through the journey of opening an edutainment exhibit, starting with establishing what will be the topic and storyline. It then teaches you how to create sensory and interactive elements that will immerse guests in that storyline, and finally, how to properly staff, clean, and maintain your exhibit, as well as gather guest feedback to make proper modifications and plan for your next amazing edutainment exhibit.
