COVID-19: WHAT IS OUR SECTOR DOING?

Together, we all have a role to play in confronting this global pandemic.

Here at CASC, we have profound hope in our collective action. Never in the history of the world have we ever seen such clear alignment and demonstration of what we are capable of. 

Our sector is stepping up.  CASC members are showing leadership in a big way.

CASC MEMBER SCIENCE ENGAGEMENT

As Canadian science centres and science museums are closed to the public temporarily, many are working tirelessly to provide quality science-at-home activities, kits, videos, and resources to their audiences - free of charge. 

Follow them on social media for a steady stream of ideas for exploring science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) engagement. Collectively these organizations reach 8 million people across Canada in person each year and reach this audience through 1.35 million accounts on social media, a number that will surely grow over the upcoming weeks and months. Our sharing of accurate, reliable information has a significant impact.

If you have other resources to suggest, please let us know at info@casc-accs.com. If you are interested in partnership please contact Marianne at mader@casc-accs.com.
