#ISCSMD 2019

General information

In partnership with UNESCO, science centres and museums worldwide are celebrating the fourth edition of the International Science Centre and Science Museum Day (ISCSMD) on 10 November.

The ISCSMD is the opportunity for our field to collectively demonstrate impact and promote our missions by showcasing science engagement activities supporting the right for all citizens to be informed, benefit from, debate and co-create science.
