The 2024 CASC Conference promises to be a unique, immersive experience like no other. The theme is Connected Horizons, and together we will explore the deep connections we share to place and to nature -- as individuals and as a community -- and how these connections work with us to advance a thriving science and innovation culture in Canada.

This year’s conference, hosted by the Saskatchewan Science Centre and in collaboration with Meewasin and Wanuskewin will connect across Treaty 6 and 4,and Homeland of the Métis; across Saskatoon and Regina; and across Indigenous and Western science.

Grounded in place with the goal of building deeper connections to nature, self, and the impact of your work, we will explore the following sub-themes:

1. Connecting Self, Place, and Impact

  • Role and support of identity in our workplaces, projects, and impact.

  • Place-making, place-keeping, and place-knowing: our role as public spaces and immersive experiences 

  • Creating transformational learning journeys: opportunities and challenges

2. Connecting Indigenous and Western Science
  • Applying Etuaptmumk (Two-Eyed Seeing) in processes and programs

  • Indigenous leadership in STEM engagement toward environmental and biodiversity sustainability, and cultural preservation

  • Land-based learning approaches and programs

3. Connecting Future Horizons
  • Understanding the changing landscape of the STEM engagement sector

  • Artificial intelligence (AI) in support of social good

  • Towards a Net-Zero future
