Can you feel it? A science revival meeting

“Free your mind and the rest will follow” is the theme of this year’s Science Assembly. Inspired by religious revival meetings, we will offer you songs, laughter, inspiration, and meaning. As a theme we will focus on STEM learning ecosystems. Expect a full-blown choir, more drama, and a soul-searching workshop.

Standard elements of any holy assembly such as singing, reading, teaching and thinking in silence, will be interleaved with a reflective activity. Our convenor Sharon Ament has a role comparable to a pastor. She will start the session with an opening statement, and she will introduce the speakers and the songs the choir and congregation sing.
