Educational exhibits are often used for teaching at farm and home shows or other expositions. This study determined factors that promoted learning from an educational exhibit on chemical resistant gloves for handling pesticides. An "active" exhibit where participants tried on gloves was compared to a "static" version without this activity. "Talking to staff" at the exhibit was most important in attracting attention and helping to learn about glove safely followed by "getting hands measured" and "trying on gloves." rightly percent indicated that they had read fact sheets provided at the exhibit and 32.5% shared fact sheets with others. Sixty-nine percent in the active group liked learning through exhibits.
