Community Scientist Initiative
Are you a scientist seeking to share your research and work with your community?
Science World’s new Community Scientist Initiative (CSI) is looking for scientists, researchers and other science-based professionals with a keen interest in engaging with public audiences, to become science communicators and ambassadors. Supported by gallery curators, and under the direction of the CSI Program Director, you will develop and deliver activities and experiences in our facility, TELUS World of Science. These activities will enhance our visitor experience by providing connections to real and/or regionally relevant science and technology.
Join us at our next training workshop, scheduled for: June 21 and 22, 2017. Email us if you have any questions: [email protected]
