AppalSTEM Alliance

AppalSTEM is a collective of multiple organizations in the Asheville region that provide informal science education for adults.

Here in the Southern Appalachian region, we are blessed with so many opportunities for learning about science among the natural wonders in our own backyard: world-class biodiversity in our forests, dark skies for observing astronomy, geological wonders at every turn, and pristine creeks and rivers.

AS IF Center and partners are developing a coalition of organizations that offer informal science education — anytime, anywhere science learning — for adults. Our organizations support activities such as science workshops, science presentations, citizen science, science social events, science hikes and other outings, art-science activities, science book clubs, science films, science podcasts, and science festivals.
