Museums are packed with scientific objects, each with a rich biography of know-how, people and places. Join David Pantalony, Joshua Nall, Paige Crosby and some of their international colleagues as they launch a new online exhibit exploring how scientific objects take on new identities as they move in and out of various social and cultural contexts.

David Pantalony is Curator, Science and Medicine, Ingenium – Canada’s Museums of Science and Innovation.

Joshua Nall is Director and Curator, Whipple Museum of the History of Science (Cambridge).

Paige Crosby is Assistant Curator of the Circulating Knowledge Virtual Exhibit.
