About Science World

Our Journey

In January of 2017, we embarked on strategic planning aimed at answering a single, overarching question: Over the next generation, what pressing social role should Science World serve for our community?

We reached out to our staff, volunteers, board, and numerous community stakeholders. We facilitated listening sessions with groups and conducted one-on-one interviews. To date, over 1,400 individuals from across British Columbia have answered the call and generously offered their input.

Through this intensive consultation process, a strong consensus has emerged around several themes. Among them, equity, ecological sustainability, community collaboration, and a focus on the future. Many have argued that Science World should address pressing issues at the intersection of science and society—in particular the growing need to scale education in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).
