International Science Center & Science Museum Day 2017

This year, ISCSMD takes place on Friday, November 10, 2017.

ISCSMD is an annual event established in 2016 to commemorate the World Science Day for Peace and Development. It is a collaborative effort among the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the world’s science centers and museums, and their networks across the globe.

The aims of the event are to establish awareness around the 17 SDGs and engage communities across the world in an effort to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as well as to celebrate science centers and science museum as well as STEAM learning.

Organizations around the world can participate by offering activities that support the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the world’s nations in late 2015. In the lead up to the event there are a series of webinars taking place to guide your preparation. More information on these can be found at

We also encourage you to visit a participating science center or science museum and take part in an activity. You can also share your visit on social media using the hash tag #ISCSMD.
