Security Alert

Teams of students are presented with a scenario in which they are employees at a local museum. Each team member assumes a different jobs within the museum and completes research based on that role. Teams are tasked to boost museum attendance at their museum by acquiring an exhibition from the Smithsonian SITES program. Their task is to convince the Smithsonian Institution that their museum is best-equipped with the proper space and security to host one of the valuable traveling collections. Teams will select an appropriate exhibit for their museum, research various aspects of the exhibit and security requirements, choose a design using a decision analysis matrix, draw a multimedia schematic of the plan, design a prototype of their chosen security system, and present a proposal, as if to members of the Smithsonian SITES committee.  Students assume the role of Smithsonian Committee as each team presents their working prototype and detailed multimedia presentation.
