Also, we are really curious to discuss ways that Science Alliance can help families with connectivity challenges to better participate in online outreach events. I know that school districts and many of our UW-Madison students struggle with this and it would be great to brainstorm ways that we can address this issue of equity.
Thanks so much, see you on Monday!
