INTERNATIONAL SCIENCE CENTRE &
SCIENCE MUSEUM DAY
What is International Science Centre & Science Museum Day?
The International Science Center and Science Museum Day (ISCSMD) is a yearly event that aims to illustrate the role that science centers and science museums can play in raising awareness and engagement in sustainable development and the solutions to worldwide challenges such as climate change, human health (HIV/AIDS, Zika and other), energy, waste, water shortages, etc. Science centers and science museums are present on all continents and welcome 300 million visitors each year who are actively seeking information and support to make changes in their communities.
Science centers and science museums worldwide take the opportunity of this day to celebrate and promote their missions through widely diverse informal science education activities addressing these critical topics articulated in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It is a day of celebration and action at local, regional and international levels and an important reaffirmation of the value of science centers and science museums everywhere.
