The Story of
the Coin Press

Pressing On...

For Teachers

For Students

For Reference

The Online Museum Educators program was developed to provide important educational perspectives for the collections-based resource initiatives at The Franklin Institute and the Science Museum, London. The premise is that the end user is likely to be the key interpreter in the online museum exhibition process. With this goal in mind, the piece "Steam Powered Coining Press" has been designed as a starting point in the introduction of meaningful learning activities and concepts. The "For Teachers" section is a collection of suggested curriculum resources that complement the piece.
