The tinkering process in the biomimicry workshop and its effectiveness on participants’ conceptions of sustainability: A case study on the Happy City workshop at the National Taiwan Science Education Center
This study uses biomimicry and tinkering workshop under constructivism in the museum to explore its influence on hopes towards the future. Recently, more researchers are focusing their studies on the view of the future. Therefore, prospecting and reflecting the future are some of the key abilities for developing environmental and sustainable education programs. As a result, this research explores the participants' concept/understanding of sustainability, biomimicry, and hope by comparing their feedbacks before and after their visit to the workshop. Using the quasi-experimental research method, the experimental group (n=33) was randomly assigned to conduct a 50-minute Happy City Tinkering hands-on workshop, while the control group did not conduct a 50-minute Happy City Tinkering hands-on workshop (n=32). The results indicated that there were only trivial differences between the two groups’ ideas on sustainability and biomimicry. However, the two groups demonstrated diverse differences toward hope. According to the results of this research, the author came to the conclusion that merely exhibition panels and videos cannot achieve participants’ impressions/ideas of hope. It is through the biomimicry workshop can perhaps enhance the institution’s expected depth and effect towards audiences and participants’ ideas of hope.
