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:

West Coast

  • Big Little Science Centre

  • Okanagan Science Centre

  • Science World British Columbia


  • TELUS World of Science — Edmonton

  • Saskatchewan Science Centre

Central 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

  • Science North

  • Sherbrooke Museum of Nature and Science

Atlantic Canada

•   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.

The CASC office is situated in Robinson Huron Treaty territory and the land on which we learn and live is the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek. We strive for reconciliation by working to transform existing relationships to emphasize open dialogue, mutual understanding and respectful collaborations.
