We’re looking for a name for an academic science exhibition. The exhibition is about intelligence and fun, spanning the fields of physical and social sciences. Some suggestions we’ve come up with are: “Smarty Paws and Science” “The Secret Life of Scientists” “Science Bites”.

The exhibition is all about how the behavior of animals, people and machines in the context of science can teach us things about the mind and how we humans interact with nature.

We’re looking for an interactive name that plays with some of these ideas; something that plays on words (e.g. “smarty”, “funny” and “intellect”) in a way that makes it catchy; and that feels like it’s appropriate for an academic science exhibition. Something memorable, catchy, creative, but also educational and interesting enough to get people interested in the exhibit.

Funny and Laughable Names for Science Exhibition

Naming an exhibition which has a funny element to it, but will not necessarily be seen as just fun. This would be a name that can be used to reinforce the fun element of the exhibit, and is also educational, but which may not necessarily receive as much attention or publicity as the purely funny names, so should still stick with the “funny” theme.

The target audience of the natural history museums is generally adults, with children visiting more often than teenagers.

There is a large range of names that can be used for science exhibitions and museum exhibits, but it requires a really creative mind to come up with something that is both catchy and memorable, as well as reflecting the key aspect of the exhibit, without being too long or complicated. While “Witty and Intellectual Names for Science Exhibition” has potential for something witty or funny which can be used to educate people about the exhibit, this does not really have that catchy element to it. On the other hand “Funny and Laughable names for science exhibition” has potential for this education element, but lacks the humour or wit in it.
