About SciSpark

SciSpark is an annual event celebrating diversity in science and a public forum for conversations about how to best support equity and inclusion in science and work toward a future in which all people have opportunities to engage in science.

About the Impact Exchange

Science is central to many of today’s most critical conversations. The Impact Exchange is about making sure scientists (and future scientists) are part of the conversation through programs that foster engagement. Through a unique integrated approach to science communication training, public outreach and broader impacts, we create an engagement ecosystem.

Organized by the College of Biological Sciences Impact Exchange in partnership with the Bell Museum, the BioTechnology Institute, the College of Science and Engineering, the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences, the School of Public Health and the College of Veterinary Medicine.
