CHINELLI, Maura Ventura; PEREIRA, Grazielle Rodrigues  and  AGUIAR, Luiz Edmundo Vargas de. Interactive equipments: a contribution of contemporary centers and museums of science for the formal scientific education. Rev. Bras. Ensino Fís. [online]. 2008, vol.30, n.4, pp.4505.1-4505.10. ISSN 1806-1117.

This article describes a research process that sought to find, in centers and museums of science, contributions for the formal scientific education. It was realized in the form of action-research with the participation, as researches, of 10 (ten) students of Teaching Formation Courses (in physics, chemistry and mathematics) are looking for researchers interactive equipments available on these spaces, the ones that allow the realization of experiments that could be reproduced in schools. The results are discussed in relation to the presence of the different fields of knowledge in the museums and centers of science (about 80% of these experiments are of physics) and to the form as the interactive equipments there presents can be used as resources for the formal education in sciences. As a conclusion, these equipments go beyond the role of low cost experiments for schools without laboratories, allowing stimulants experiments that bring out the students the pleasure to finding answers for questions that intrigue them.

Keywords : science teaching; interactive equipments; didactic experiments; centers of science.
