OU Lynx

The educational arm of the History of Science Collections of OU Libraries is the OU Academy of the Lynx.  We seek to collaborate with educators in exhibit-based learning by creating, field-testing and sharing Open Educational Resources (OER’s).  We invite researchers, graduate students, and others to join us as a participating educator, museum worker, amateur astronomer, student, scholar, sponsor or docent.  Currently we are developing OER's related to the Galileo’s World exhibition (2015-2018).
