If you haven’t had a chance yet, there is still time to check out the AAAS Virtual Paperless Meeting Program! https://meetings.aaas.org/paperless/
Hello #science enthusiasts!
We put together virtual programming to engage with you in the next 8 weeks. We’ll discuss #STEAM films, podcasts, and more.
Program for each week will be revealed on Friday prior.

— AAAS Annual Meeting (@AAASmeetings) March 20, 2020
As AAAS extended their proposal deadline for their 2021 Annual Meeting, AAAS decided to build on the paperless media program launched at their 2020 Annual Meeting. They have curated an eight-week exploration of thematic topics presented through scientific podcasts, video series, and documentary films. You can listen on your own time, then post your comments on Twitter during a designated chat time.
If you missed the previous Twitter chats, you can still check out the multimedia materials for each week, which follow the theme for their 2021 Annual meeting of Understanding Dynamic Ecosystems:
- Humanity Matters – Week of March 23
- Living Indoors – Week of March 30
- Building Communities – Week of April 6
- Issues of Conscience – Week of April 13
- Experiencing Surprises – Week of April 20
- Understanding Sensation – Week of April 27
- Encouraging Movement – Week of May 4
- Returning Outdoors – Week of May 11
What would you create for a “virtual paperless meeting” on an Earth/space science topic? And could this be a model of engagement for more remote learning (perhaps bringing in an expert during the live chat time to engage with students)? Thank you, AAAS, for an example of creative engagement during challenging times!
