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.

How do you develop your capacity to lead a growing research group? In Tempe, Arizona State University faculty in STEM disciplines have the opportunity to explore this question with improvscience founder, Dr. Holmes.

In this 2-session Coaching Intensive, participants develop their mentoring capacity. Through playful and practical exercises, participants explore and address the specific challenges that arise for them in leading their research projects.

Why talk about another person's book? Because, it's radical! And for improvscience, the breakthrough discoveries of the Performance of a Lifetime (PoaL) CEO, Cathy Salit, inspired Dr. Raquell Holmes to explore the benefits of performance in scientific research environments. Dr. Holmes and her colleague, Evelyn Dougherty of the Boston Social Therapy Group, are hosting an intimate book reception with their guest of honor, Cathy Salit, along with friends, colleagues and associates.
