GABRIEL, Carla Gruzman and TEIXEIRA, Luiz Antonio. Biodiscovery hall: an interactive biology exhibit. Hist. cienc. saude-Manguinhos [online]. 1999, vol.6, n.2, pp.377-393. ISSN 0104-5970. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-59701999000300008.
Biodiscovery Hall is a permanent interactive exhibit on biology and biodiversity. At the hall - which is part of the Museu da Vida, a science and technology center located on the Fundação Oswaldo Cruz (Fiocruz) campus - the general public can learn about health, science, and technology and can gain a better understanding of scientific processes and advances and the impact these have on our daily lives. Biodiscovery Hall has been designed with three concerns in mind: content itself and its relation to the fundação; identification of the museographic elements essential to the exhibit; and the debate surrounding pedagogical aspects of this proposal.
