Kick off your 2018 ASTC Annual Conference experience with an inspiring look at the transformational impact that science centers and communities have, especially when serving diverse populations who most need opportunities to participate in science. Keynote Speaker Ed Yong, Science Writer at The Atlantic magazine, humorously and sensitively launches discussion about the ways that individuals and institutions can engage with audiences around science and technology while also taking action to help solve challenges in society. The opening session will also feature a welcome from ASTC and Connecticut Science Center leadership, as well as Roy L. Shafer Leading Edge Award presentations, which this year are presented at both the Opening Plenary Session on Saturday and the General Plenary Session on Monday.
Open to all registered attendees.
Roy L. Shafer Leading Edge Awards are sponsored by Group Delphi.
