The third annual International Science Centre and Science Museum Day (ISCSMD) proved to be another great success! On November 10th, 2018, Science Centres and Museums across the world participated in this celebration of Science as a Human Right, promoting the role we play in reaching the Sustainable Development Goals put out by the UN.
Among those participants were members of CASC spanning across Canada:
Armand Frappier Museum
Canada Agriculture and Food Museum
Canada Aviation and Space Museum
Canada Science and Technology Museum
Montreal Science Centre
Musée de l'ingéniosité J. Armand Bombardier
Ontario Science Centre
Sherbrooke Museum of Nature and Science
• Science East
With this year’s theme of Science as a Human Right, these institutions served as places that contributed to the use of science for the creation of a better world through engaging scientists, inclusions efforts, gender equality initiatives, and other programs and exhibitions full of empowerment in the world of science.
Science Centres and Science Museums can be found all over the globe and they welcome millions of visitors each year who seek information and support to make changes in their communities. ISCSMD is also a reminder to everyone about the universality of science with the ability to build bridges across cultural, geographical and religious boundaries and also addressing common concerns.
