Are you grappling with how to broaden participation in STEM—within program design, exhibit development, event production, evaluation, and institutional leadership? Together with a diverse group of researchers and practitioners in informal science education and science communication, the Center for Advancement of Informal Science Education (CAISE) has developed a set of materials to expand thinking and reflect on practice. Join us for a rich discussion, and help us generate new ideas to impact research, evaluation, and practice.
