Join The Movement. Amplify Your Impact!

The Science Museum of Virginia's annual Up & Atom Women's Leadership Initiative brings together women and men from the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields; community leaders; and enthusiastic advocates to both celebrate the impact of the Science Museum and to celebrate women in science. This one-hour fundraising initiative features a complimentary continental breakfast, keynote remarks and a call to action to support the Science Museum's efforts to engage youth - especially girls - in informal science education opportunities that foster 21st century learning skills while sparking an interest in and positive attitudes about learning. If you’re interested in attending the event, email upandatom@smv.org.
