Event description

Description

Join us on Monday January 29th for the second annual LMME conference, BIG IDEAS: Museums and Momentum.

This conference aims to bring together staff and volunteers from museums, art galleries, science centers, and related organizations to examine lessons learned, discuss best practices, explore strategies to common problems, and network. The fun and interactive conference will include a keynote speaker, numerous breakout sessions, catered lunch, and an evening social.

This year's keynote speaker is Dr. Jennifer Gardy, Canada Research Chair in Public Health Genomics. Her presentation, Project SciCAT: Bringing Science Communication Training to the Community, will cover the why and how of Project SciCAT (Science Communication Action Team!), and dive into some of the lessons and interactive activities the team has developed. The SciCATS project - an initiative aimed at putting free, Creative Commons - licensed scicomm training materials online. Visitors to scicats.org can download text-based materials to teach themselves, download slides and a facilitator’s guide to use in teaching the materials to others, or book a workshop with a SciCATS facilitator.
