Dimensions, 2016 Year in Review—A Look Back at 2016



2016 Year in Review

In this special year-in-review issue of Dimensions, we take a look back at the accomplishments of ASTC and the science center and museum field in 2016. ASTC took the lead in establishing the first-ever International Science Center and Science Museum Day on November 10, 2016, in which more than 300 science centers and museums in 58 countries joined together to celebrate the impact of our field in supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals. ASTC also participated in a variety of new projects and partnerships in 2016 and continued to deliver outstanding professional support and programs (including a highly successful 2016 ASTC Annual Conference in Tampa, Florida (see pages 29–35 of the 2016 Year in Review issue; contact our publications department to order back issues of the print edition) while providing collective voice for the field and running efficient association operations. In addition to highlighting ASTC’s accomplishments, we also present a selection of some of our members’ best photos from the past year, which provide a compelling visual representation of science centers’ missions in action.
