Most improvscience events are hosted by societies, conferences and programs that are developing collaborative, inclusive and innovative scientific communities. We help scientists develop the skills needed to collectively improv(e) science.

The Living Improv Experiment is the improvisational theatre show of improvscience performed in conjuction with conferences and science festivals.  And this September, it is part of the Cultivating Ensembles in STEM Education and Research Conference. The evening Welcome address by Dr. Holmes follows a reception and includes a LIVE show. The conference creates a unique moment to explore the relationship of arts, humanities and STEM.

Dr. Raquell Holmes leads a team of volunteer creative scientists, mathematicians and techies in an afternoon of STEM play with youth and adults from poor communities. These scientists and science enthusiast are eager to create opportunities for everyone to explore STEM. They recognize that STEM education and experiences are important and not always accessible to those who live in poor neighborhoods.

Dr Holmes is working with CSO organizers to develop an inclusive CSO program through improvisational performance. She will provide recommendations for inclusive practices that will support and generate leaders for inclusion in science. Together Dr. Holmes and the CSO program are creating a place where students who love science can be part of creating its inclusive and socially relevant culture. (And their future jobs).

The success of the CSO program is recognizing that the students are the creative force.

Dr. Holmes is once again bringing improvscience services to the curriculum of the Bioinformatics Program at Boston University. Each year since 2013, the program invests in its students' growth by bringing Dr. Holmes and her colleagues at improvscience to help students develop their scientific performances. In this case, we literally mean performances. How do scientists talk? How do they talk about their work? How do they talk about scientific questions, experiments and philosophies?
