2011 ASTC Annual Conference and Exhibit Hall
October 15–18, 2011
Hosted by the Maryland Science Center
Theme: Knowledge That Works—From Theory to Practice
Baltimore has evolved from a blue-collar, industrial city into a healthcare, biotech, and tourism hub. Looking both inward and outward, it identified its strengths and leveraged them to remain vital. While holding true to its working-port, working-class legacy, it thrives today by evolving and transforming, distinguishing itself from larger neighboring cities, and staying relevant to its community.
In many ways, science centers face the same challenges every day. Legacy programs and services remain part of our core missions, yet science centers also must understand the process of evolving not only to exist perpetually, but also to grow. How can this evolution and adaptation happening at the local level benefit the science center community as a whole? And how do we know we've succeeded? The work begins with sharing the process from theory to practice as science centers apply our collective knowledge to practical problems.
Early bird registration will open in late-March. Members: $550, Nonmembers: $670
