Future teachers attending the Campus School at Smith College in Massachusetts co-create an event demonstrating that pop-up exhibitions can be more engaging than formal gallery exhibitions. Madelaine Zadik, manager of education and outreach at The Botanic Garden at Smith College, writes about the Garden’s work with education students in Pop-Up Exhibits.

Zadik explains how a professor of early childhood education paired her students with kindergarten students so they could learn how to guide young children in inquiry-based activities in the botanic garden. The semester-long collaboration between the future teachers and the Garden resulted in a pop-up exhibition and an online gallery featuring artwork inspired by the Garden’s annual bulb show.

Learn more by reading the article online and by viewing the exhibition on the Garden’s website.
