A Little Video...

Although this is a little late...we conducted our wee interview during one of the first weeks of the program. People visiting the museum, both those who have been members for years and out-of-state visitors, have little to no idea how much goes on behind the scenes. In fact, when asked most believed that the majority of the collections were out for the public to see. The fact that less than 1% of all collections are on display reveals an intriguing aspect of the museum as a whole: there is MUCH more than you can see by just walking around the exhibits. It's almost as if people see the DNA Discovery Center, acknowledge it as a cool part of the museum, but never make the connection that people in the lab are constantly working on real research - I know I didn't.
