An Extended Turing Test: A Context Based Approach Designed to Educate Youth in Computing
In a Science Museum / Center setting, a context based approach to an exhibit could provide the best results when trying to encourage young teens to pursue a career in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) field. An overview of our new context based exhibit that is currently being developed along with some preliminary test results indicate that the methods used in this exhibit have drawn young teens into exploring STEM careers.
