Abstract:

A possible approach in order to explore and increase the understanding of the role of interactions at Science and Technology Centres (STCs) and museums is to focus on and discuss what implications these interactions may have in relation to learning and human development. One explicit aim with such a focus is to take the rich flora of sociocultural or cultural-historical frameworks as a point of departure in order to begin to develop a theoretical model, which aims to describe and explain the significance of interactions in these contexts.
