CASC NETWORK UPDATES

COVID-19 Community Forum

We are listening - connecting CASC members with each other.

  • Our office is exploring ways to help CASC members connect with each other for support during the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve heard from numerous members that they’d like CASC to provide access to virtual community discussions so they can connect with peers during this challenging time. CASC is working on launching a variety of scheduled group video chats that will be open to our members. These invitations will go out through our contact list. If you have a colleague who has not yet signed up to our newsletter, please share this link with them so that they will receive the invitation to join the group chat.

Our colleagues at ASTC have created an open-access, General Forum.

  • Science centres and science museums can share information about the steps they are taking related to COVID-19 and pose questions to other sector professionals. They’ve extended an invitation for all CASC members to use this Forum as well - registration to create a myASTC username is free.


CASC Member Science Engagement: Online Programming 

As Canadian science centres and science museums are closed to the public temporarily, many are finding ways to continue to serve their communities by offering educational programming, resources and materials. Follow them on social media for a steady stream of ideas for exploring science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) engagement. View listing here.

If you have other resources to suggest, please let us know at info@casc-accs.com.

#PhysicalDistancingis the new #SocialDistancing! 

Together, we can slow the spread of COVID-19 by making a conscious effort to keep a physical distance between each other.  Social distancing is proven to be one of the most effective ways to reduce the spread of illness during an outbreak. With patience and cooperation, we can all do our part. Click here to learn more.

    GUIDANCE & ADVICE FROM WITHIN THE SCIENCE CENTRE & MUSEUM SECTOR

    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.
