Making a
the World

On November 10, see how girls and women scientists are transforming the world in a 24-hour, online video showcase supporting gender equity in the sciences, and tune in to a discussion with global thought leaders on “Gender, STEM, and the Global Sustainable Development Goals” at 12:00 p.m. ET.

Tweet your support on November 10 in a giant Thunderclap, or visit a participating science center/museum near you to join in the fun, learning, and transformation of our planet.

International Science Center & Science Museum Day celebrates these institutions across the globe, in conjunction with the UN’s World Science Day for Peace and Development. These community resources work to engage everyone in science and technology learning—and empower individuals to take action on the Sustainable Development Goals.

Together, we have the power to use science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in civic decision-making and direct action to solve the critical issues facing our planet.

Find out how your organization can participate in 2018’s International Science Center and Science Museum Day.
