Join our monthly Virtual #SciEngage Group Discussions related to public engagement with science! The AAAS Center for Public Engagement with Science & Technology, along with staff from the American Society for Microbiology and the Association of Science and Technology Centers, organize these in-depth discussions among public engagement practitioners, professionals and other stakeholders. The meetings (accessed online through Zoom, and recorded) are open to anyone interested in public engagement with science, and envisioned as another place to continue conversations begun at in-person meetings and conferences. Topics of upcoming and past virtual meetings are listed below.
Conversations continue online! For resources/links from past sessions and a place to continue the discussion, join the Public Engagement with Science Group on Trellis Communities by AAAS.
If you would like to pitch an idea for a future meeting, please contact Geoff Hunt at email@example.com or Emily Therese Cloyd at firstname.lastname@example.org.
