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.

What happens when a physicist, a chemist and a biologist walk into a UX classroom....?
You’ve heard the term “egghead,” but have you ever really looked at an egg? Scientists Nick Gross, a physicist, Jennifer Novotney, a chemist, and Dr. Holmes, a biologist, share their thoughts, experiments and views on that ever-important object, the egg.
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.
Experience the philosophy and culture of a company dedicated to play and performance in science. How do we understand these seemingly disjointed activities, science and improvisational play, to be related?
Each chat will focus on a new topic addressing play and performance in the context of science:
What does it mean to continue to come out on behalf of our own and others’ diversity? How do we include ourselves? Does inclusion equal homogeneity? What do we grapple with to build new kinds of conversations and collaborations that take us to a new place?
Dr. Raquell Holmes addresses these questions in her talk at the conference, on January 7th, about the importance of ensembles in building the future of black women in computing.
It is fitting that the Cultivating Ensembles in STEM Education and Research (CESTEMER) conference, focused on performance, science and science education, makes its appearance in Chicago, Sept. 15-17th. This is made even more significant by taking place at the midwest’s premiere regional theater in Chicago, thanks to Willa Taylor, Goodman Theatre’s Director of Education.
