The Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC) is a professional membership organization with a vision of increased understanding of—and engagement with—science and technology among all people and a mission to champion and support science and technology centers and museums.
ASTC is engaged in a transformative process to implement a new strategic direction for the association to better support its members. Grounded in a commitment to work inclusively, collaboratively, humbly, and effectively with members and partners, ASTC is building capacity across three strategic pillars:
- Champion and support science engagement, by elevating the work of science and technology centers and museums, forging new collaborations across the science-engagement ecosystem, and investing in communications and advocacy.
- Set course together for new frontiers, by supporting ASTC members to prepare and lead with their communities, act on market and societal trends, and embrace effective approaches that advance equitable engagement in science and technology.
- Support and connect ASTC members, by facilitating learning, catalyzing shared efforts, sharing data, and cultivating leadership and skills across the science-center workforce.
To support ASTC in advancing this new strategy, the organization is seeking highly motivated, mission-driven individuals to fill roles at every level across our functional teams. Click below for complete job descriptions and timelines for applying.
