    CASC E-newsletter: December 10, 2020

    This past year, CASC staff and its Board of Directors have been working tirelessly to support our sector. We’ve increased our communications and are regularly sharing helpful resources, amplifying science communication offerings of our members, and connecting our community. You can learn more about our ongoing efforts here.

    We couldn’t have done it without our members, partners, collaborators, and volunteers. A special thanks to NSERC and Rideau Hall Foundation, key financial sponsors who supported our pivot to engage our community online at our virtual CASCADE Awards CeremonyAnnual General Meeting (AGM) Panel Presentation, and community forums. Our CASC staff also send a heartfelt thanks to Science North and Ontario Science Centres for housing our offices and for their ongoing support.

    As we close off 2020 and look to the future, check out this aptly titled CASC session WTF 2020: Canadian perspectives during a time of disruption, which took place at the ASTC 2020 Virtual Conference. This session explored What the Future holds from CASC Member leaders across Canadian Science Centres, Museums, and Zoos.

    Wishing you holidays filled with fun and laughter, and very best wishes for a prosperous new year.

    Gordon R. Gore, 1937 – 2020

    In 2000 Gordon started the BIG Little Science Centre in one room at David Thompson Elementary School in Westsyde. Gordon was granted numerous awards for promoting science, particularly his founding of the BIG Little Science Centre and his many publications encouraging hands-on science. Some of the most prestigious awards include the B.C. Teacher of the Year Award, the Eve Savory Award for Science Communication, and the Award for the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada Award for Science Promotion.

    Gordon requested that there be no funeral. At a later date, a cheerful remembrance event will be arranged by the BIG Little Science Centre, where it is hoped some of Gordon's favourite science demonstrations will be performed by present and former staff. Gordon requested in lieu of flowers donations in memory can be made to the Big Little Science Centre.
