Project Posters & Placards Gallery is a collaboration led by UMass Lowell that includes the MBTA, UMass Boston, Texas State University, the National Science Foundation, and the Museum of Science.

Education can happen in unexpected places, especially with the growing prevalence of smartphones. So for 14 months spanning across parts of 2013 and 2014, we explored new ways to share science with the public using “out of home media” by combining posters and placards on the T (Boston’s public transit system) with online resources, social media, andphysical exhibits and events around the city. In designing our out-of-home media products, we chose to focus on climate change, one of the most important and challenging issues of our time.
