Luigi Anzivino develops educational programs and activities in the Learning Studio that are hands-on, and construction-based in nature. His particular interests lie in the role of facilitation in the context of an open-ended activity on a museum floor, and in developing strategies to apply an informal learning approach to acquiring factual and precise knowledge. He has a background in Behavioral Neuroscience, having earned a Ph.D. from the University of California in Los Angeles, following his BA in Psychology from the University of Bologna, Italy. His first foray into the museum world was at the Exploratorium as an explainer, or floor guide, and he still acts as a liaison between Learning Studio activities and the explainer program.
Luigi has developed a strong passion for sleight-of-hand magic, and its relationship to science education, perception, and attention.
