International Science Center and Science Museum Day 2017
Building on an outstanding global debut last November, the world’s science centers and science museums are pleased to announce the 2017 International Science Center and Science Museum Day (ISCSMD) for Friday, 10th November, in conjunction with UN’s World Science Day for Peace and Development.
Participating is easy. Your involvement can range from something as simple as putting your dot on the map and labeling your existing programs and exhibitions as 2017 events to creating a totally new experience for your visitors.
The day will also launch an international Mosquito Tracking Citizen Science programme. Hundreds of Science Centres across the globe are already involved and we would be delighted for UK Science Centres and Museums to join them. The programme is asking Science Centres to get communities and families to take photos of mosquitoes in their part of the country, and upload these to the international data set to track mosquito migration and malarial infection across the globe. The programme is supported by Science Centre networks across the world and has both NASA and UN involvement. If you would like to host the UK or worldwide launch on November 10th 2017, please get in touch with Dr Penny Fidler, the ASDC CEO.
International Science Centre and Science Museum Day Webinar
On the 13th September 2017 at 8.00pm (GMT-UTC) or 14th September at 11.00am (GMT-UTC), International Science Centre and Science Museum Day will be hosting its second Webinar online. This webinar will present the best stories so far on how Science Centers and Museums are addressing the UN-Sustainable Development Goals hearing from both institutions who have shared their stories last year and new ones that have been inspired by what happened in 2016.
