Science & Technology

In the turbulent times of the 2020 global COVID-19 pandemic, an inspiring vision took root in the mind of Dr. Raven Baxter. She dreamt of a space where scientific dialogue could be democratized, where barriers to understanding could be dismantled. This dream crystallized as STEMbassy, a weekly live TV series that assembled a dynamic team of scientists, sparking enlightening discussions on the intersection of science and society with a virtual audience.

As the reach and impact of STEMbassy unfolded, Dr. Baxter recognized the potential for something larger. This recognition led to the evolution of her initial idea into a more expansive vision: The Science Haven.

The Science Haven is a monumental leap forward. It represents a broader, more inclusive gateway to the universe of science, passionately dedicated to making science engaging, meaningful, and accessible for everyone, irrespective of their background or prior experiences.

Our curated programs, including the Science Communication Fellowship, Public Lecture Series, and Citizen Science Initiative, provide scientifically robust, friendly, and comprehensive resources to all. One significant project, the Stellar Dreams initiative, promotes inclusivity in astronomy education by gifting 100 telescopes to Black families across the United States, opening up the night sky to new perspectives.

At The Science Haven, we champion the transformative power of science education. Our purpose is to ignite, support, and empower every individual who harbors a passion for science. As we navigate this exciting journey, we remain steadfast in our mission: to create an environment where science is not just a field, but a welcoming community where everyone can thrive.

We warmly invite you to join us on this exhilarating journey of exploration and understanding. Together, we can redefine science, not just as a field of study, but as an integral part of life. Welcome to The Science Haven - your space, your place, in the universe of science. Let's unravel the wonders of science, together!
