Celebrating With Science: New Opportunities for Main Streets
Monday, May 6, 2024
3:00 PM - 4:15 PM
Location Name
East A

Local Main Streets know how to use history, art, culture, and commerce to build community. But there may be a resource you have overlooked: science! Celebrations involving science and scientists can engage new collaborators and sponsors, while serving your community in new ways. Hear from leaders of the Science Festival Alliance, a Main Street that runs a science festival, and Main Streets that integrated science into their events for the recent total solar eclipse. Whether you are looking to create something entirely new or integrate science programming into existing events, you will learn how to get started in this session.
