improvscience leads monthly improv workshops for STEM students and faculty at Boston University. These two hour sessions, sponsored by the BU Bioinformatics program, are led by improvscientists, scientists and performance directors of improvscience.

Come out for an evening of fun, unscripted performances while building your skills at listening, talking in a group and discovering new things with other people.

Bruce Corson and Raquell Holmes will be leading students in Martha McCoy’s Palisades High School in a ‘life design’ workshop called “Being Inside and Outside the Box.” They will be introducing an adapted version of a professional development design workshop for educators and practitioners. And that's how these CESTEMER alumni roll.

What is the significance of communication in science? Do we need it? And who is “we”? Through the Thirst event series in DC on Feb. 11th, Dr. Holmes will take the stage inviting us all to shape and define what science communication and being a science communicator means. The thirst event in DC corresponds to the AAAS meeting. Increasingly this meeting is home to science communicators across the globe. What's your “scicomm sign”? Are you looking for your “scidentity”? What if we eliminate identity all together?

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?
