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 are the benefits and experience of improvisation?

In these free online improv sessions, we practice listening, building with the contributions (offers) of others, and collective storytelling. Scientists around the country are discovering that improvisational theater helps their communication and collaboration skills. Scientists strengthen their ability to hear what others are saying, to speak spontaneously and respond to the unexpected—all qualities that deepen our ability to generate scientific conversations.

Building community is a constant practice and the Mathematical Theoretical Biology Institute knows it. The Mathematical Computational Modeling Center at Arizona State University brings Dr. Holmes back for the fourth year to kick off the MTBI program. The summer of intensive applied mathematics for undergraduate students is characterized by intense collaborative projects that have students developing research skills on issues they care about.

Dr. Holmes is helping to build community and communication in the Clinical Translational Science Institute at Children’s National (CTSI-CN).

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. How do we understand these seemingly disjointed activities, science and improvisational play, to be related?  

Each chat focuses on a new topic addressing play and performance in the context of science:
