What. A. Year.

ScIC "Science is Cool" is a series of free virtual unconferences for science teachers brought to you by PocketLab. They were born in March 2020 as a response to the social climate at hand.

We kept going because teachers kept asking for more, and we are honored to be a part of this with you and look forward to another year of professional development and science education together.

For teachers, by teachers


ScIC "Science is Cool" is brought to you by PocketLab, a science technology company founded by teachers. 

We started ScIC "Science is Cool" virtual unconference in March 2020 as a way to make the best of our, um, unique situation, and create new opportunities for both teachers and innovative education companies. The spirit of our work as an "unconference" is to provide everyone with useful tools and valuable resources as well as giving participants a voice for what's next.

ScIC quickly evolved into a thriving, inspiring forum for teachers around the world to access tools, offer solutions, and also have a place to find camaraderie, and feel heard and understood

Thank you for being an integral part of ScIC "Science is Cool". We are elated by how well these events have been received and intend to hang out with you for the long run.

"This was the best conference I have ever attended in my teaching career. All of the presenters I attended had great information that was extremely relevant and helpful!"
"So glad I gave up my Saturday for this. It has been so motivational, inspirational, and educational."
"Spectacular event, the coolest I ever had… the quality of the speakers, the topics, the rhythm, everything so well planned. Thank you."
