Science Rendezvous



It is with heavy hearts that we officially announce that Science Rendezvous 2020 is cancelled.  Last week, due to the growing concern over the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and with our commitment to our community’s health and wellness in mind, we made the decision to cancel all Science Rendezvous events nationally scheduled for May 9, 2020. 
At this time we do not see an appropriate way to reschedule this event within 2020.  We feel strongly that the responsible thing to do is to look to the future and plan to hold Science Rendezvous next year on May 8, 2021.
We do not take lightly that the cancellation of so many events has a significant impact on everyone involved. Nonetheless, we know that this is the right decision, that we must do our part to help keep our communities safe and healthy through this challenging time.
We thank you all for your continued support and your commitment to each other’s safety, health, and science.
We look forward to seeing you on May 8, 2021!
