Wiki Version:
<p>The Chicago Academy of Sciences / Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum has developed robust educational curricula incorporating real specimens to engage K-12 students and their teachers both within the museum and in schools across Chicago. These specimen-focused programs use all manner of prepared specimens, including mounted specimens, study skins, pinned insects, and dried organisms. Storage housing must serve to stabilize and preserve these specimens, while also facilitating use.</p> <p>More complicated situations arise with specimens that are prepared in multiple pieces, which happen with specimens that have more bodily damage. In these cases, only the parts of the specimen that are salvageable are prepared, but this creates specimens that might be perceived as disjointed, especially to young audiences. This example demonstrates one approach for designing storage housing for a bird specimen that was prepared in multiple pieces that balances preservation and support of the specimen with educational use and display.</p>
