Five Years of Science Outreach: SciXchange 2017-2022
For the past five years, SciXchange has been working with TMU faculty, students and community partners to fulfil its mission of making science engaging and comprehensible to the general public. Passionate about the research that scientists do, SciXchange has become a leader in increasing science literacy and in providing clear science communication by ensuring its outreach activities are accessible and inclusive. Its ultimate ambition? A scientifically engaged society in which all people can participate in dialogue and make informed decisions using scientific information.
With over 1,200 hours of programming offered across 69 communities since its founding, that vision is coming to life. Here is a brief summary of accomplishments over five years of science outreach.
