The Tapia Conference—the Richard Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing—takes place in Atlanta, GA.

The Living Improv Experiment is the improvisational theatre show of improvscience performed in conjuction with conferences and science festivals.  And this September, it is part of the Cultivating Ensembles in STEM Education and Research Conference. The evening Welcome address by Dr. Holmes follows a reception and includes a LIVE show. The conference creates a unique moment to explore the relationship of arts, humanities and STEM.

Dr. Holmes is once again bringing improvscience services to the curriculum of the Bioinformatics Program at Boston University. Each year since 2013, the program invests in its students' growth by bringing Dr. Holmes and her colleagues at improvscience to help students develop their scientific performances. In this case, we literally mean performances. How do scientists talk? How do they talk about their work? How do they talk about scientific questions, experiments and philosophies?

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.
