CoP Meet-ups

 

 

ASTC Communities of Practice (CoPs) are groups of professionals who work in informal science education, share a concern or a passion for something they do, and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly, sharing ideas, concerns, resources, lessons learned, and more—both online and during in-person, networking meet-ups.
