On Your Own: Exhibit Based Teaching Partnerships (EBTP)

The Exploratorium is a museum of science, art, and human perception located in San Francisco, CA. The Exhibit Based Teaching Partnerships (EBTP) Web site was designed by Ideum for the Exploratorium's Exhibit Services. This site is not publicly available; it is intended for partner museums. The EBTP site contains a range of information about the groups of Exploratorium exhibits that rotate to a variety of international museums, as well as other aspects of the program. It consists of images, video, maintenance manuals, and more.


The EBTP site is a password-protected, members-only Web site. The Exploratorium Exhibit Services Web site is the parent site.

“Dreamweaver gives us excellent control over tables, which are essential for complex layouts. We frequently create complex tables to allow for optimization of graphics and inclusion of “rollovers.” Having the ability to easily modify tables makes our work much easier.”

——Jim Spadaccini, Ideum

In this bonus activity, you will recreate the main page of the EBTP Web site on your own. The files you will need for this exercise are located in the Bonus/Lesson_04 folder. This page is made up of tables nested inside other tables. Start by examining the Completed file in-depth. Begin your page by creating a new page and using the final file as a guide for creating the tables. You can view the final file in the Bonus/Lesson_04/Completed folder.


Deconstructing the completed file will help you understand how the tables were created. Make a backup copy of the file and try unnesting tables to see how they are constructed.
