In an effort to encourage more self-motivated learning, educators at San Francisco's Exploratorium came up with an activity called 'Juicy Question.' ... If all goes according to plan, [visitors will] investigate and reflect [on an exhibit], thereby learning more about the process of scientific inquiry itself. This book details the 'Juicy Question' approach, describes the educational principles behind it and offers advice for adapting the game for your own museum. The promotion of such group inquiry, the authors believe, can advance school science education and encourage lifelong learning." - Museum Magazine
