We are a globally distributed organization working on improving equity in digital science education. As we enter the Anthropocene, a geologic epoch where humans overwhelming impact Earth system processes, it is critically important that we train responsible planetary stewards. This needs to be done at all levels and educational settings, from the formal classroom to informal learning events. Digital technologies are some of the most cost-effective ways of improving science education universally, when done right. Coupled with game-based learning, role-playing, place-based learning, and other experiential modes of learning, we are working to transform science education to better meet the challenges of the 21st century.
We are currently working on four major projects: 1) Agavi, a digital science learning platform for low-resource areas; 2) Greenworks, a Global North-South partnership that uses role-playing to teach planetary stewardship; 3) Public Works, a collection of public outreach projects focusing on informal learning (currently exploring concepts in science tourism); and 4) Global.Science, a podcast on global science education.
Science Voices was founded in 2019 by Dr. Lev Horodyskyj, who spent nearly a decade working on digital astrobiology and sustainability learning at Arizona State University. Science Voices builds on that work by taking it global and working with communities that couldn’t utilize the high concept resources that were developed due to limitations in bandwidth, power, or funds. Prior to his time at ASU, he completed a PhD in geosciences and astrobiology.
Science Voices is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, incorporated in Arizona, USA.
