Science and science education is evolving rapidly with the internet, mobile devices, and social media changing how knowledge is created, communicated, and used. Science is becoming more open, global and collaborative (and potentially closer to society), as tech advances are generating big data streams (e.g., GIS, genomes, isotopes, ct scans) that remain largely disconnected. Those changes have created new challenges, but also profound opportunities, for museums at a time when environments and associated biodiversity are being rapidly reshaped. What role will museums play in understanding these changes?
