Have you ever wondered what scientists do? What, or how, they think? Science is nothing more than human beings like you & me working to understand the world around us. Join Dr. Raquell Holmes, founder and director of improvscience, along with guest experts in having playful and creative conversations about questions like: Can we know how the universe started? What’s a vaccine, and why do folks get them? What is evolution ,and why do scientists believe in it?

CESTEMER brings together people from different disciplines and experiences and generates new collaborations and relationships. Such relationships are visible in San Francisco in the American Geophysical Union session "The Role of Scientists as Communicators: Practice, Research, and Reflection". Led by Sarah Dewitt and including Jeremy Hoffman who met one another at CESTEMER, the session highlights work in outreach and media, including Hoffman's explorations of flash mobs. 

How do you develop as a mathematical biologist? Is it possible for students from underprivileged backgrounds or under represented groups to become excellent mathematical scientists? How does it happen?

Arlene Evangelista of Arizona State University* will present her work at the American Society for Cell Biology meeting this month in San Diego: "Students’ perspective on learning experiences of Mathematical Theoretical Biology Institute in pursuing higher education".

improvscience will hold a workshop for graduate fellows participating in Boston University's NSF-funded GK12 Project GLACIER. The workshop blends aspects of the Creating Conversations in STEM Classrooms workshop with those from Professional presentations.
