This site is the online hub for a community of practice dedicated to public science events.
The members of this community of practice share a craft: each member is affiliated with at least one event initiative, and they are united by an interest in live, in-person events that connect public audiences and science/STEM in some way.
Members are also united by a sense of community with each other: every member actively participates in some form of networking activity every year.
Science.events is primarily focused on supporting connections in the US and Canada. It is managed by staff in the MIT Museum’s Experimental Practice Group with support from a Leadership Team that includes:
Kacie Baum, Nebraska Science Festival
Dana Buskovitz, Atlanta Science Festival
Sam Connors, Everyday Futures Fest
Monique Ealey, Mississippi Science Festival
Diana Plasker, Science Friday Events
Sandra Valencia, City of STEM
Kari Wouk, BugFest Raleigh
