The theme for CASC’s 2011 Conference is Change, a constant in the science centre field. Science and technology are constantly changing, our audience demographic is changing, and our workforce is changing. Sessions will focus on how are we meeting these challenges of change across all facets of our organizations.
The 9th Annual Conference will be hosted by Science North in Sudbury with anticipated attendance of more than 100 delegates. This 3-day conference will include a pre-conference activity, more than 20 learning sessions, a keynote speaker, and events including a welcome reception, a trade show (Friday, June 10) and the national awards gala dinner (Saturday, June 11).
All events are geared towards facilitating practical innovations in the development, delivery and support of science engagement activities. Individuals from all areas of informal learning are welcome to participate.
And if you still need more convincing, Science North has just undergone a major redevelopment of its science centre. CASC delegates will be among the first to see it in action!
