INTERNATIONAL SCIENCE CENTRE & SCIENCE MUSEUM DAY

ISCSMD is an international grassroots movement to demonstrate the important role that Science Centres play in advancing science literacy.   

Last year, 14 CASC members joined more than 300 institutions in 58 countries and thousands of visitors to demonstrate their connection to and support for the United Nations's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

There are several ways that you can participate:

  • Add your science centre to the map:  http://www.iscsmd.org/map/ - we hope to see at least 28 CASC Members this year – double last year’s participation!
  • Participate in the global experiment (link: http://www.iscsmd.org/experiment/) using the GLOBE app to track mosquitoes and mosquito borne diseases.  Note:  this is a citizen science activity
  • Use the media relations tools in the toolkit (link: http://www.iscsmd.org/tool-kit/) to communicate with local media about how the local science centre is part of an international movement.
  • Invite your local MPs, MPPs, MLAs, Municipal Representatives, Band Council members and other important leaders to visit your Science Centre on November 10
  • Use social media on November 10 to advise your audiences that it is International Science Centre and Science Museum Day and to come in for a visit. Use #ISCSMD in your posts.  Don’t forget to tag us @CASC_ACCS so we can share your posts!

For more information about  ISCSMD, visit www.iscsmd.org

Don't forget to let us know how you are participating.  We look forward to sharing your November 10 stories and highlighting the great work of Canada's science centres!


For details about Canada’s participation in 2016, download the CASC Report here.

Customize a postcard to send to your MP, MPP, MLA, Municipal Representatives, Band Council members, and other important community leaders.
