It’s supposed to be rainy, so why not attend? Carl Zimmer will be there. MAS does really cool outreachy things like teacher training so they’re worth supporting, even if you can’t attend. Anyway, this found its way into my email machine:
Join the Massachusetts Academy of Sciences as we spend a day at the Museum of Science, Boston celebrating science and our efforts to improve the state of STEM education in Massachusetts! We’ve got a packed day planned for our members and registrants, and we’d love nothing more than to spend the day with new and not-so-new friends!
