Museums like the Children’s Museums and Theatre of Maine (CMTM) and the EcoTarium continually strive to produce engaging exhibits that promote family learning since families with young children are their primary audiences. Using design criteria developed by museum researchers over recent decades, we built a prototype pneumatic arm exhibit for CMTM to inspire children’s interests in engineering and science. We conducted several rounds of prototyping at the EcoTarium to refine the design. We conclude that the final design was very successful in meeting CMTM’s learning outcomes, including the promotion of family learning and active prolonged engagement, and recommend that the museum move to final fabrication of the exhibit.
