NAMES 2018 Conference

The North Africa and Middle East Science Center’s Network (NAMES) was launched on 30 January 2006 at the Library of Alexandria. The goal of NAMES is the popularization of science throughout the region by enhancing public understanding and involvement in science and scientific culture among an increasingly diverse audience.

NAMES 2018 will take place on 24–26 October 2018 at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina (BA), Egypt. The Conference is hosted by one of NAMES founding members, the BA Planetarium Science Center (PSC), in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of NAMES 1st Conference and General Assembly Meeting (GAM) also hosted by the PSC.
“360°: See It All!” is the theme of NAMES 2018. It is a call to look at work in science centers and museums from all angles, functions, and contexts, to be contemporary to where the world is now while we create, connect, and commit. Science communication professionals are expected to set an example of scientific, critical, and sustainable thinking.

The Conference targets science educators; such as animators, teachers, etc. Also, it covers the following themes:
• Content – Creating Shared Experiences
• Connections – Creating links
• Commitment – Creating your sustainability
