This year’s Science Fair will build upon the overwhelming success of last year’s session by taking hands-on learning to the next level.
The Science Fair is designed to equip attendees with tools, resources, and connections to inspire, launch, and sustain transformative anti-violence initiatives in their own communities.
Attendees will learn skills from innovative anti-violence projects that use arts and media in their work, network with artists and media-makers, and experience videos, websites, and other media (available free or for sale)!
The event will also feature “science fairies” who will facilitate the session, more opportunities for exchanges between presenting organizations, and invitations for participants to spotlight their own amazing work. Feel free to drop by at any time during the session.
