Science-A-Thon is a five day celebration of science and scientists – from the lab to the field, from learning to teaching, from routine tasks to major discoveries!
Participating scientists will share the ups and downs of a #dayofscience. Scientists will post photos on social media of their days including morning routines, work commutes, research instruments, class projects, and after-work fun. Yes, some scientists spend the day in white coats, but many also spend the day climbing mountains, in museums, on ships, working in teams, and much more!
Science-A-Thon goes for five days to allow flexibility for participants and broader community engagement. You are welcome to share a few photos a day, lots of photos in a single day, or engage in whatever way fits your goals and schedule.
Each day from June 18 to June 22 will have an optional focus:
- Monday – SciCom
- Tuesday – BioMed
- Wednesday – SciPolicy
- Thursday – Earth (and National Selfie Day)
- Friday – Rewind
Science-A-Thon will raise money for the ESWN, and will also support ScienceForward, a STEM-wide initiative that we recently launched. ScienceForward empowers scientists, promotes scientists as role models, and builds on-ramps for students to engage in STEM.
The goal of the Science-A-Thon is to increase visibility of scientists and the important work they do to the public. Everyone is welcome to participate in Science-A-Thon!
