Science Engagement With People of Faith Workshop
Saturday, March 4, 2:30 – 3:30pm ET
Though more than 70 percent of United States adults claim a religious affiliation, faith is often perceived as a source of tension in STEM. This workshop is intended for attendees concerned about religious inclusion in science spaces, including classrooms, labs, on social media, in policy discussions, or in public settings. Participants will review and discuss why culture, worldview, and identity (including faith) are important in science communication and engagement; consider examples and best practices; and participate in a small-group exercise on a challenging question. This workshop is offered by the AAAS Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion (DoSER) program.
