The Museum of Science, Boston received funding from the National Science Foundation to carry out a conference grant exploring connections between research and practice at the intersections of imagination, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), and ISE (informal STEM education). A series of virtual convening events were held from September 8-17, 2021. The proceedings of these events are documented in this report to summarize the content of the convening activities as they were implemented, provide references and citations for the content delivered, and acknowledge the contributions and participation of the convening attendees and collaborators.

This document only reports the content and structure of the convening events. Results of the team’s research and a description of findings emergent from participant discussion and convening artifacts will be reported in 2022 and shared on
