Exploratorium : Evidence

How do we know what we know?

This project uses case studies to examine how scientists construct a functional understanding of the world by gathering, assessing, and making use of scientific evidence. Examining the nature of evidence is a critical part of science literacy and a key to understanding our own process of knowledge acquisition.

Evidence is an Actionscript 3.0 based educational project I built with the San Francisco Exploratorium. We used multimedia and learning theories to teach users “The way Science works” using evolution as an example body of knowledge.
