Experimenting With History: A Field Guide to Connecting Science and Your Heritage Organization
We are experimenting with history! Consider the 2019 Annual Conference as a field guide to finding new ways to connect with science at your heritage organization: from injecting a historic perspective into STEM programs at your site; to analyzing how visitation at museums and historic sites can impact health and well-being; to exploring the many ways that science can help us understand our collections better, through conservation, forensics, and imaging technology. 

Join us on Tuesday, September 24 at the Bear Mountain Inn & Conference Center to discover strategies and find inspiration for exploring how to connect with science at your heritage organization.

The Annual Conference will once again feature the extremely popular "Follow the Speaker" conference format which is designed to help sites engage at a more direct level with our presenters. Click the 'Conference Program' button below to see what we'll be talking about at the Conference. The conference will be a full day of learning, conversation, networking with your peers, office hour opportunities with grant funding organizations, as well as a lite breakfast, networking luncheon, full-day exhibit hall, the  Awards for Excellence  ceremony and poster session, and more!
