An exhibit is a great way to lay out information in an informative but fun way. Many types of organizations use exhibits. Schools, for example, may want to do exhibits to show off the best work from students, whether it’s science experiments or artwork. Some non-profits may also want to put up exhibits to show off their work and maybe solicit more money from donors. There are many ways you can incorporate exhibits into your next activity, but you need to make sure they aren’t boring. Check out these tips to make your next exhibit better:
Use a Terrain Board
Most people think that exhibits are just words and pictures thrown together on the wall. However, there are many ways you can make your exhibit more exciting and one of those ways to use a terrain board. These boards are basically scale models representing an area. You can use these boards in many ways, like showing viewers what a place look like or even show science concepts. These are a great way to bring your exhibit to life.
Using Music and Video
In today’s tech-inclined world, people are no longer impressed with just pictures and words. You need to “wow” them and capture their attention and one way is to use music and videos in your presentation. You can make sure they stay and look at your exhibits by adding audio and visuals to your presentations.
Some exhibits may benefit from having an on-site guide explain things to viewers. You can find volunteers or staff who are knowledgeable so they can approach visitors and have them answer any questions.
