Join Us for improvscience Chat!

Wednesday, February 20, 2019

The improvscience Chat is an online conversation series, open to all. Join us in these free, informal chats that expand our conceptualizations of science and scientists. The Chat is hosted by Dr. Holmes and happens every other month at 2 pm ET.

Experience the philosophy and culture of a company dedicated to play and performance in science. Each chat focuses on a new topic addressing play and performance in the context of science:

  • How does performance advance science?
  • What is collaborative communication?
  • How does the development of ensemble intelligence serve scientists?
  • D​​oes building ensembles create inclusion?

OUR NEXT IMPROVSCIENCE CHAT is on Wednesday, February 20, and is focused on Performing Science: Civil and social change in STEMM. This is a special event, because we'll be joined by Simone Hyater-Adams. If you'd like to join this Chat, contact us for call information.

Simone Hyater-Adams is a PhD candidate in the ATLAS Institute at the University of Colorado Boulder. She received her degree in physics from Hampton University in 2014, where her interest in education sparked. Now, as a physics education researcher and National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow, Simone is committed to doing critical work that pushes the field of physics to examine the oppressive structures within its culture. With her intersecting identities as a Black woman, a physicist and a performer, her dissertation research examines the nuanced experiences of Black physicists and recently won the Harry Lustig Dissertation Award from American Physical Society's 4 Corners Section.
