You might assign each team member with responsibility for one EXHIBIT each, or you could work in smaller groups on each THEME 50

It is worth bearing in mind at this point that visitors have different preferences. Your exhibition should attempt to use: - VISUAL - AUDITORY - INTERACTIVE / 3D COMPONENTS 51

It is important as a team to write down all the TASKS in a simple list or in a GANTT Chart, indicating how long it is going to take to complete each TASK or EXHIBIT and who is responsible for each task. 52
